Vindiciæ foederis; or, A treatise of the covenant of God entered with man-kinde, in the several kindes and degrees of it in which the agreement and respective differences of the covenant of works, and the covenant of grace, of the old and new covenant are discust. The conditions of the covenant of grace on mans part, are assigned and asserted. The just latitude and extent held forth, and against all opposites defended. Several corollaries containing many heads of divinity, now controverted; and practical points singularly usefull inferred. In particular the necessity of a constant setled ministery (to bring men into covenant, and to bring them up to the termes of it,) and of schooles, and nurseries of learning, and an orderly call in tendency to it. Three scripture-texts by Mr. John Tombes in the first part of his Antipædobaptisme solely handled, and totally perverted, are fully vindicated. Infant-baptisme in that latitude, as now in use in reformed churches, maintained. By Thomas Blake, minister of the Gospel.
Printed for Abel Roper, at the Sun against Dunstans Church in Fleet-street,
