Description

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

Tennent begins this sermon about the gospel by citing 2 Corinthians 4:4, "In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them." He also cites 1 Timothy 1:11, "According to the glorious gospel of the blessed God, which was committed to my trust."

From dates noted in this manuscript, it appears Tennent wrote this sermon in 1744, then delivered it again in 1758.
