At long last, thanks to the work of Michael Seal, the first volume in the “Literary Labors of the Reverend Matthew Poole” series is available. Blasphemer Slaine with the Sword of the Spirit is Poole’s defense of the Deity of the Holy Spirit, written for the edification of the common man.
From the back cover: “John Bidle’s “XII Arguments Drawn out of the Scripture; wherein the commonly Received Opinion, Touching the Deity of the Holy Spirit, Is clearly and fully Refuted” (1647) was answered by several Reformed theologians and scholars, both continental and British. These responses were full, demonstrative, and clear; but they were written largely for academics. It fell to a young parish minister, Matthew Poole, not yet thirty years of age, to provide a concise and popular response, for the edification of the common man. Poole’s “Blasphemer Slaine with the Sword of the Spirit” remains one of the best popular defenses of the Deity of the Holy Spirit in the English language.”
