Chapter Summary

Five different ministers preached the sermons contained in the Hartford Sermon Notebook. The sermons that Hartford's ministers preached contained a variety of subjects ranging from covenant doctrines, the processes of regeneration, conversion, salvation, the power of sin and the glory of grace. The sermons transcribed in this study include these subjects and others, including intemperance and its effects on Indians, and the pervasiveness of the Devil in the lives of the congregation. The Hartford Sermon Notebook is valuable partly because it contains the sermons of at least five different ministers, including Isaac Foster, Ben Woodbridge, Caleb Watson (school-master), John Whiting and Thomas Cheever from Malden Massachusetts. The Woodbridge sermons could be the work of John or Timothy, but the likelihood that they are all the work of Ben Woodbridge seems more plausible based on the themes of these sermons.
