    Charles Leslie, Short and Easy Method with the Deists (; ) Thomas Sherlock, Trial of the Witnesses of the Resurrection () Richard Watson, An Apology for Christianity () Richard Watson, An Apology for the Bible (New York: American Tract Society, ). Author of Anthropology of Folk Religion, Deism Refuted, Or, the Truth of Christianity Demonstrated by Infallible Proof from Four Rules, and A Short and Easie Method with the Deists/5.

    One phase through which deism may be said to have passed was that of a critical examination of the first principles of religion. It asserted its right to perfect tolerance on the part of all men. Freethought was the right of the individual ; it was, indeed, but one step in advance of the received principle of private judgment. Such representatives of deism as Toland and Collins may be taken as. Charles Leslie (–), Jacobite propagandist, author of The Rehearsal and Short and Easy Method with the Deists; Robert Nelson (), founding member of the Society for the Propagation of Christian Knowledge; Samuel Pepys, Secretary to the Admiralty under Charles II and James II, diarist.

    Deism (/ ˈ d iː ɪ z əm / DEE-iz-əm or / ˈ d eɪ. ɪ z əm / DAY-iz-əm; derived from Latin "deus" meaning "god") is the philosophical position that rejects revelation as a source of religious knowledge and asserts that reason and observation of the natural world are sufficient to establish the existence of a Supreme Being or creator of the universe.. At least as far back as Thomas.   One of these is Charles Leslie’s Short and Easy Method With the Deists. It’s around 70 pages, but it packs a punch. Leslie’s “method” is a test on how we can judge something as historical – and it can include miracle claims.
