Description

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

Tennent begins this sermon, "On the throne of grace," by citing
Hebrews 4:16, "Let us therefore come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need." He also cites Psalms 28:2, "Hear the voice of my supplications, when I cry unto thee, when I lift up my hands toward thy holy oracle."

From dates noted in the manuscript, it looks like Tennent wrote this sermon in 1748, then delivered it again in 1750, 1755, 1758, and 1761.
