Origines Sacrae, Or a Rational Account of the Ground of Christian Faith, as to the Truth and Divine Authority of the Scriptures, And the matters therein Contained
No bishop of his time was more famous than Stillingfleet. His power as a writer and speaker as well as the accuracy of his religious and historical knowledge were highly esteemed by his contemporaries. Here the author asserts the divine authority of the scriptures. Altogether, he touches on: the obscurity and defects of ancient history; Phoenician, Egyptian, Chaldean history; the defects of Grecian history; general uncertainly of heathen chronology; the certainty of the writings of Moses; the trial of prophetical doctrines, predictions, and miracles; general hypotheses concerning the truth of the doctrine of Christ; the rational evidence of the truth of the Christian religion from miracles; the difference between true miracles and false; the being of God; the origin of the universe; the origins of evil, nations, heathen mythology; the excellence of scriptures.
