Vindiciae Legis: or, A Vindication of the Moral Law and the Covenants, from the Errors of Papists, Arminians, Socinians, and more especially, Antinomians (1647)
"A nonconformist clergyman," Burgess "was a member of the (Westminster) Assembly of Divines. Ejected at the Restoration... his works are much valued and have become very scarce" (Darling, Cyclopedia Bibliographica
, p. 439). This book contains 30 lectures preached at London "against the antinomian errours of the times." It is the second edition corrected and augmented. Burgess says that he wrote to "maintain the dignitie and use of the Morall Law against late errours about it." Taking on all the errorists listed in the subtitle Burgess also notes that he has "endeavoured to give the Law its due, and the Gospel its due, remembering that of Luther... He that knoweth how to distinguish between Law and Gospel, let him give thanks to God, and know he is a Divine" (i.e. a scholar of Scripture-RB). An exceedingly rare item that sells for over $300 a copy on the rare book market. This book should be read by everyone in the Protestant Reformed church (or anyone who must deal with them) as it demolishes their (i.e. Protestant Reformed) errors concerning covenants --especially in regard to their denial (and disregard for the biblical, "Westminster" view) of the covenant of works. Some of its 62 chapter heads include: "What a man cannot do by the power of nature;" "Whether there are any antecedaneous works upon the heart before grace;" "What does this Image (of God in man--RB) consist;" "Whether God did enter into a covenant with Adam;" "How God can be said to covenant, or enter into a promise with man;" What Law this delivered in Mount Sinai is, and what kind of laws there are, and why it's called the Moral Law;" Whether this Law repeated by Moses, be the same with the law of nature implanted in us;" "Why God gave the Moral Law;" Whether the Law be an instrument of sanctification;" "Whether the Law be a covenant of grace;" Wherein the Law and Gospel do oppose or differ from each other; under which is handled the false differences between the Law and Gospel made by Anabaptists, Papists, and Antinomians;" "Whether the Law command faith;" "How Christ is the end of the Law."
