Hoornbeek, Johannes – Socinianism Confuted, vol. 12  (Amsterdam, 1650/62)  There is a one page syllabus of questions on p. 104 (by GB’s counting) in vol. 1, with Scripture and subject indices at the end.  There is a syllabus of questions in vol. 2 after the Prolegomena.

Hoornbeek goes through the whole system of Socinianism; hence this work is virtually a polemical systematic theology.
