Description

Gilbert Tennent (1703-1764) was an Irish-American Presbyterian clergyman, and one of the leaders of the Great Awakening.

Tennent wrote this sermon about the Parable of the Net and
the Parable of the Pearl. Preaching the Gospel is likened to fishermen using nets to catch fish, with detailed descriptions of the fishermen's tasks and the destinies of the real and allegorical fish. The Parable of the Pearl compares trade and commerce in the physical world with that in the spiritual world, via the search for the Pearl of Great Price.

Both presentations employ the numbered lists of "particulars" and close arguments favored by Rev. Tennent.
