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 by Tennent. The first sermon, "On God's love," begins with citations of Matthew 22:37-38 and John 4:16. The second sermon, "On the penitent thief," begins with reference to Luke 23:39-43.

From dates noted in the manuscript, it looks like Tennent wrote these sermons in 1747, then delivered one or both of them in 1749, 1750, 1753, 1755, 1758, and 1762.
