Description

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

The title of this sermon translates to "On creation." In it, Reverend Tennet discusses Genesis- who and when and how long creation took; can something be created from nothing? He provides an overview of Aristotle's work in relation to God, then settles into detailed explications and arguments about creation and its purposes.
