Edward Pearson, 1756-1811, "a learned English divine, and the great champion of Arminianism in the Church of England near the close of last century and the opening of this. [He was] educated at Sidney College, Cambridge. He was appointed rector of Rempstone, in Nottinghamshire. Dr. Pearson was considered an excellent preacher, and one of the most learned men of his times. .his fame chiefly rests on his controversial writings against antagonists of necessitarian proclivities. On the other side, Dr. Pearson was among the first to sound an alarm respecting the danger to which the Church was exposed by the spread in it of Calvinistic views of Christian doctrine. In fact Dr. Pearson was the champion of the Arminian clergy in the Church, and the champion of the Church itself against whatever seemed to threaten its integrity and its perpetuity."--McClintock & Strong: Ency. Biblical, Theol. & Eccl. Lit. We offer Pearson's proposal for changes in the Athanasian Creed. In his introduction he says that it is unfortunate that the Athanasian Creed is rarely used even though the rubric calls for thirteen time in a year. Bookseller Inventory # 17450
