Chapter Summary

The sermons contained in the Hartford Sermon Notebook are typical of "The Plain Style," a sermon style characterized by a logically ordered sequence of points in which the introductory text is followed by various examples of Doctrines, Reasons, and Uses. The transcription methodology used for the notebook was not complicated since the notebook's author recorded the sermons by attempting to write down every word the minister said, as he said them. Accordingly, each section of the sermon is prefaced by the word Doctrine, Reason, or Use. In fact, there are examples in the notebook where a word is spelled in two or three different ways in the same sermon. Many times in the notebook the sub points, which are nearly always preceded by a sequential number, are written directly after a biblical reference.
