Does anybody know much about this pamphlet? It was published at the end of 1646 and inspired a number of responses. It had the subscription of fifty-odd London ministers, including two press licensers, and later gained the support of many more ministers around the country. John Goodwin and Henry Hammond both published pamphlets vindicating themselves from charges made against them in the pamphlet. The Testimony supported the Covenant and reads a little like a cleaned up version of Gangraena. I know that Anne Hughes talks about it a bit in her book on Edwards, so I’ll be looking there, but I’ve never seen other references to it.
