- Created Date
Sermons notes by Edward Hitchcock for a sermon delivered at Amherst College in February 1846 and again in February 1850 and February 1856, discussing the importance of religious revival. His consideration of Psalm 85:6 includes a detailed defense of revivals as significant for all Christians, but also for those in a literary institution such as a college, where religious reawakening can reinvigorate those who will set the standard of piety in the general community and churches. Hitchcock concludes with fervent calls to action and holy ambition in the service of saving souls and religious duty. The sermon notes appear to be incomplete.
