Description

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

This manuscript contains two sermons written by Tennent. The first sermon, on the topic of salvation, begins with reference to Phillippians 2:12,"Wherefore, my beloved, as ye have always obeyed, not as in my presence only, but now much more in my absence, work out your own salvation with fear and trembling." The second sermon, on the topic of saintly perseverance, begins with reference to John 10:27-28, Phillippians 1:6, and 1 Peter 1:5.

From dates noted on the manuscript, it looks like Tennent wrote these sermons in 1744 and delivered one or both again in 1750.
