“The doctrine of Justification is of prime importance in the Christian system, since the clear apprehension of it les at the bottom of all proper conceptions of the God with whom we have to do, and is therefore essential to the peace and comfort of the soul of man.”

Fuller, p. 355

 

Few Protestant theologians were as involved in Calvinist controversy as John Davenant. Other English divines were willing to tone down, or even omit, their Calvinistic doctrine, but not Davenant. While early in his preaching and writing career, his views were moderately Calvinistic, but they escalated quickly…with the approval of King James! He preached decisively on predestination, but even into the 19th-century, Davenant was considered a moderate (but outspoken) Calvinist, but ‘not equal either in extent of learning or in breadth of view’ as other Calvinists of his time. (Stephen, 101).

 

This first edition of “Praelectiones” (or “A Treatise on Justification”) is Davenant’s views on the authority of the Christian church, and outlines the fundamentals of Justification of faith. Sayle notes the lace bordering on the title page, which is consistent with this and later editions. (Sayle II, 5734). In addition to the attractive title page, the blank sheet before is filled with notes on substance of faith and Christian doctrine – certainly outlining major aspects of this work. The inconsistency in pagination is noted in the ‘Catalog of Books, Cambridge.’ (Bowes 39*). A fine copy with decorative gold gilt stamp on cover.
