Gilbert Tennent (1703-1764) was an Irish-American Presbyterian clergyman, and one of the leaders of the Great Awakening. Tennent begins this sermon on Christian soldiers by citing 2 Timothy 2:3-4, "Thou therefore endure hardness, as a good soldier of Jesus Christ. No man that warreth entangleth himself with the affairs of this life; that he may please him who hath chosen him to be a soldier." From dates noted on the manuscript, it appears Tennent wrote this sermon in 1744, then delivered it again in 1746 or 1747, and 1750.
