The Exaltation of Christ

Thomas Collier, 1615-1691, was a leader among the Early Particular Baptists; and whilst it’s true that Collier towards the latter years of his life was mentally defrocked and confounded by the LORD in spiritual judgment and understanding, this radical change of sentiments did not take place until well into the 1650’s as could easily be proved by searching his various writings prior to that period. His Anti-Arminianism tract entitled “Three Great Queries” {published in London in 1645} in which he sets out to refute those who held Arminian views, especially their opinions about General Redemption, Free Will, and Falling from Grace, remains a bulwark against all Arminian endeavors to corrupt the Gospel. During this period Collier’s Gospel sentiments, especially in relation to the truths of Sovereign Grace were all in line with the First London Confession {1644/46} and the purest forms of Gospel Truth.

This volume, {with a foreword by Hanserd Knollys,} printed first in 1646, and then again in 1647, 1649 & 1651, is one of his finest works, and seeks to set forth the Glory and Exaltation of CHRIST in the Days of the Gospel, as the alone High Priest, Prophet and King of Saints.
