Translated by Toplady at the age of nineteen and held from publication for some time, it was later requested by Dr. Gill that it be released to the public. After good circulation in North America and overseas, "John Wesley attempted to circulate a few mutilated extracts from the book, signed with the initials of Toplady's name. This forgery of Mr. Wesley caused Toplady to issue another edition, & this is the edition that we have reprinted," notes Atherton in the introduction.
Atherton calls this "one of the best, if not the best book ever issued on Absolute Predestination." He also notes that "[i]n our day so-called Protestants not only deny and reject these truths, but very zealously support the popish theory of free-will. "
