"Those Books, which have been written in our own Language against the Corruptions of the Church of Rome, are of two sorts ; viz. such as treat of some one or more particular Disputes, and are wholly silent concerning the rest : or such as are of a more comprehensive nature, and take in all the material Differences between the Reformed Churches and the Church of Rome." - from the Preface.
