First published in 1659, Pearson's "Creed" is a longlasting standard of the Church of England. Extensively quoting scripture and ancient authors, Pearson created a work that is considered an early refutation of Gnosticism. The book won high praise, not only from Anglican theologians, but from such men as Samuel Johnson.
