    William Prynne, Twelve Considerable Serious Questions touching Church Government: Sadly propounded (out of a Reall Desire of Unitie, and Tranquillity in Church and State) to all Sober-minded Christians (London: F. L. for Michael Sparke Senior, ); Prynne, Independency Examined, unmasked, refuted, by twelve new particular interrogatories (London: F. L., for Michael Sparke Senior, ).Author: Eliane Glaser. The principles of ecclesiastical government found in the First Book reflect the extraordinary state of the Scottish church, which was then in a formative period. Because of the irregular state of the church at the outset of the Reformation, the Scottish church temporarily used superintendents, readers, and exhorters to supplement the regular. The Reason of Church Government is another exercise in arguing the Presbyterian case against the episcopal organization of the Church of England. Milton argues that God established, in the scriptures, a presbyterial form of church governance. He argues that this pattern of worship was given, along with the plans for the Temple, to David. Yet we would not have our zeal for Presbyteriall government misunderstood, as if it tended to any rigour or domineering over the flock, or to hinder and exclude that instructing in meeknesse them that oppose themselves, which the apostolicall rule holds forth; or as if we would have any such to be intrusted with that government as are found not.
