The author's "object has been to exhibit Popery in a full-length portrait, without distortion, that so its native ugliness may be made manifest to the young reader, who may be at first attracted by its meretricious ornaments, its plausible pretenses, its seductive promises, and its daring claims. He will see the overgrown monster of the Church without disguise, and learn the grand secrets of its growth and ghostly power. His good sense, not blinded by prejudice and superstition, will show him how unscriptural is its character, and how exceedingly ridiculous are many of its doctrines, its legends, and its rites and ceremonies." - Preface.

Rev. Ingram Cobbin (1777-1851), English Congregational minister, assistant secretary to the British and Foreign Bible Society.
