William Chillingworth was a controversial theologian. The premise of this work, his main contribution to Protestant theology, is the sole authority of the Bible in spiritual matters, that the great principles contained in Scripture are too plain to be mistaken. In the preface he says, “For the Church of England, I am persuaded that the constant doctrine of it is so pure and orthodox, that whosoever believes it, and lives according to it, undoubtedly he shall be saved, and that there is no error in it which may necessitate or warrant any man to disturb the peace or renounce the communion of it. This, in my opinion, is all intended by subscription.” Chillingworth was no great scholar, but his argumentative clarity was praised by many, including John Locke. [Craik, ed., 1916.]
