Gilbert Tennent (1703-1764) was an Irish-American Presbyterian clergyman, and one of the leaders of the Great Awakening. Tennant wrote this sermon on the subject of affliction; he had written on this subject previously, and this may be a newer version of an older sermon. He begins by citing Psalm 119:71, "It is good for me that I have been afflicted; that I might learn thy statutes." From dates noted in the manuscript, it looks like Tennent wrote this sermon in 1755, then delivered it again in 1757 and 1758.
