Edward Hitchcock sermon notes

- Created Date
Sermon notes by Hitchcock meditating on the life and religious worldviews of people at various ages, apparently prepared for an occasion speaking after the death of an adult woman. Hitchcock uses the question to Jacob, “How old art thou?” in Genesis 47:8 to discuss the pilgrimage through life and trouble that all must take. He analyzes how people in age groups of ten years, both Christians and nonbelievers, see the world and what they have experienced. He begins with those ten years old and ends, with the most commentary, with those between seventy and eighty. Hitchcock has written related hymns on the last page.
