A rare facsimile from this Calvinist divine who was one of the most acute controversialists of his age. This highly influential Puritan theologian was assistant to the president of the Synod of Dort and Professor of Divinity at Franecker. He died in 1633. In this massive work, Ames aims at vindicating the Lordâ€™s sovereign Kingship in matters of worship. The summary and general thrust of the detailed and precise argumentation found in this book is beautifully encapsulated by the words inscribed on its title page, "I hate vayn inventions: but thy law doe I love" (Ps. 119:113). Almost 700 pages.
