The title continues: "Containing A succinct Account of external Events, prosperous or calamitous; the State of Learning; the State of Practical Religion; and the Disputes, Heresies, and Sects, that have troubled the Christian Church, in each Century. With An Appendix, containing the History of Philosophers, Deists, Socinians, Arminians, Anabaptists, Quakers, Moravians, etc. To which is subjoined, A List of Errors, especially since the Reformation."
The importance of this book is noted in Brown's first sentence to the preface, "To peruse history as a Christian, is to view every event as the work of God; -- As a practical verification of the doctrines, promises, threatenings, or predictions of his word; -- and as an excitement to faith in, gratitude towards, and conformity to him, as our God and Redeemer." A fine set by one of the giants of the Reformed faith!
