To place our purpose within proper limits, we first endeavor to investigate the nature and extent of this sacred doctrine. Concerning this there are ten points of inquiry:

A1 Whether it is necessary?

A2 Whether it is a science?

A3 Whether it is one or many?

A4 Whether it is speculative or practical?

A5 How it is compared with other sciences?

A6 Whether it is the same as wisdom?

A7 Whether God is its subject-matter?

A8 Whether it is a matter of argument?

A9 Whether it rightly employs metaphors and similes?

A10 Whether the Sacred Scripture of this doctrine may be expounded in different senses?
