Comments: "Much of the poem was written before 1700 as a result of conversation with Peter Bayle, but none of it was published until after its author's death more than forty years later...the author must have..realized that his positions, though they were now the main prop of orthodox theology, had become too vulnerable to render effective support to the Church against Lucretian materialism."

I just received a book I ordered. I wanted to tell you how pleased I was with the condition of the book and especially how it was meticulously wrapped for shipment. I order a lot of books and your service far exceeds what I normally see from book dealers. I hope in the future I'll be able to find books I need at your book store. Keep up the good work. - Bruce V.
