I know what you mean...:)

Did you happen to read about the debate between George Gillespie and Thomas Coleman -- it sounds like some modern-day debates on the PB :lol:

Gillespie also carried on a spirited debate with Thomas Coleman, the leader of the Erastians. Now in one volume, one can read the entire debate, beginning with GG's Brotherly Examination, a response to Coleman's original tenets based on Job. 11:20, followed by Coleman's own response, A Brotherly Examination Re-Examined (1646). Gillespie returned the volley with Nothing Answered, which was rejoined by Coleman's Thou Indeed Speakest Amiss (orig. Maledicis Maledicis). Finally Gillespie responded with Thou Hearest Amiss (orig. Male Audis), before the controversy subsided for a while.

And we wonder why each theonomy thread goes 200+ posts long! :lol:

one should be without George Gillespie's Dispute Against the English-Popish Ceremonies (1637, now in second Edition) written by GG when he was a mere 24.
Actually Gillespie was 24 when the book was published; he had been working on it at an even younger age. Pretty remarkable. But you get a better insight into Gillespie when you place him in his familial context. His grandfather Patrick Simson and father John Gillespie had opposed the articles of Perth Assembly and EPC is essentially "a reasoned attack on the Perth Articles." See Roy Middleton's fine introduction and overview of Gillespie's life leading up to the Westminster Assembly which was prefixed to the Naphtali Press edition of EPC (sadly out of print). The intro is online at:
