Soame Jenyns Bibliography

View of the Internal Evidence of the Christian Religion 1776
A work which arosed much interest: “at the fashionable clubs it is gold to silver, since the appearance of Mr Jenyns’s book, that the Christian religion is true.” (Letters from Mrs Elizabeth Carter, to Mrs Montagu, iii. 6.) Jenyns argued that God, not the abuse of men’s free will, is the cause of evil, a view denounced by groups as diverse as the Methodists and Rational Dissenters.
