Henry Burton (1579–1648) was a great puritan sufferer for the gospel of Christ and for his views of nonconformity. He was blessed with considerable learning, and was an eminent scholar.
Burton masterfully explains the rudiments of the Antinomian heresy, and in contrast, he shows how the Evangelical faith and the Moral Law stand together in the state of grace. He demonstrates the biblical position of the Law and grace, and what the Christian’s reasonable duty is to the Law.
In the second half of the treatise Burton uses the example of the 4th commandment to show what the Sabbath Day is, and how it is now the Christian Sabbath or Lord’s Day. He completes the treatise by demonstrating to Christians what their reasons and motives are to adhering to God’s prescribed Law, showing how the Law and the Gospel are reconciled.
