Chapter Summary

For Puritans seeking a church of the Elect, Ecclesiastes might have been understood to be "addressed to God's people, rather than to those who are ignorant of God or in rebellion against Him. This chapter presents a sermon about the glory of a godly man's (a saint's) death, that it should be glorified as freedom from the influence of Satan. The first installment sounds especially like a funeral sermon, and it probably was. In his Colonial History of Hartford, the historian William De Loss Love writes about a prominent early resident of Hartford named Major James Richards. Loves' history was originally published in 1914 and his research was based on original sources.
