A Preface.-1783-John Howie (1735-1793).-This preface contains one of Howie's classic essays against the flood of toleration that was then sweeping Scotland which, he believed (and has proven true), would bring destruction to the interests of the covenanted reformation and with it all concern for true religion.
An Useful Case of Conscience, Learnedly and Accurately Discussed and Resolved.-1651-Hugh Binning.-This is Binning's work against unlawful voluntary associations, confederacies with the wicked, and any other religious or quasi-religious covenant making with infidels and enemies of true religion.
A Solemn Testimony Against Toleration,-1649-Commissioners of the General Assembly of the Church of Scotland.-This is a testimony against the principles of toleration that were afoot in England at that time with arguments against it and a description of the divine doom such toleration incurs.
A Testimony to the Truth of Jesus Christ.-1659-Ministers of Perth and Fife.-A joint testimony against the various corruptions and defections plaguing the once reformed Church of Scotland by a group of Protestor ministers.
