Gilber Tennent PDF

You can download a pdf of the recently posted study “The Life and Ministry of Gilbert Tennent” here. I hope it’s helpful.

This “lesser light” of the Great Awakening is worthy of more consideration than he usually gets. If you don’t believe me, believe George Whitefield:

“I never before heard such a searching sermon. He convinced me more and more that we can preach the Gospel of Christ no further than we have experienced the power of it in our own hearts. Being deeply convicted of sin, by God’s Holy Spirit, at his first conversion, he has learned experimentally to dissect the heart of a natural man. Hypocrites must either soon be converted or enraged at his preaching. He is a son of thunder, and does not fear the faces of men.” (Milton J. Coalter, Jr., Gilbert Tennent, Son of Thunder: A Case Study of Continental Pietism’s Impact on the First Great Awakening in the Middle Colonies, 73)
