Title: A Defence of Reveal'd Religion against The Exceptions of a late Writer in his Book, Intituled, Christianity as Old as the Creation, &c.
Description: London: Printed for S. Wilmot...And Sold by James and John Knapton..., 1732. FIRST EDITION. 8vo, pp. [viii], 467 [468 - 472 adverts], including half-title, contemporary panelled calf; front joint slightly cracked, top and base of spine slightly chipped, lacks label. With the contemporary autograph "J. Fleming" on the recto of the front free end-paper. The "late Writer" alluded to on the title-page was, of course, Matthew Tindal, whose Christianity as Old as the Creation was first published in 1730 and was described as "The Deist's Bible." Conybeare's rebuttal is as much philosophical as theological, and he relies a great deal on the writings of John Locke, describing him as "a very extraordinary Genius...the Glory of [his] Age, and the Instructor of the present." He later became friendly with the printer and novelist Samuel Richardson, whose novels Pamela and Clarissa bear evidence of Conybeare's teachings. Three editions of this work appeared in 1732.
