Summary:
"The Antinomians have long been positioned on the fringe of mid-seventeenth-century English religion, placed there by detractors like the theologian Richard Baxter (1615-1691). This study considers the intellectual career of Baxter from the vantage point of his deep hostility to Antinomian doctrine - a doctrine that both contemporaries and historians have judged to be subversive, immoral and radical."--BOOK JACKET.
