This volume is a reprint of a lost classic on the doctrine of the Trinity by Dr. Samuel Clarke (1675-1729), the famous philosopher, theologian, and friend of Sir Isaac Newton.
This is the definitive... More > posthumous edition from his Works, printed in 1738. (The first edition was published in 1712.)
Also included are nine follow-up writings by Clarke, in which he responds to some of his many critics, as well as an account of Clarke's life by Benjamin Sarum.

This book was printed in 1691, and this reprint edition is almost totally readable, but is NOT pretty, nor is it easy to read. For other books on the Trinity: trinities.org/books< Less
