Description

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

This manuscript contains four sermons by Tennent. The first sermon, "Diligent in business," begins by citing Romans 12:11. The second sermon, "Rejoycing in hope," begins by citing Romans 12:12. The third sermon, "On god as a refuge," begins by citing Deuteronomy 33:27. The fourth sermon, "On the eternal arms of God," begins by citing Deuteronomy 33:27 and Isaiah 33:2.

From dates noted in the manuscript, it looks like Tennent wrote these sermons in 1746 or 1747, then delivered one or more of them again in 1756.
