This collection is made up of 5 Christian sermons (70 pages) concerning religious subjects. The sermons were written between June 10, 1798, and January 1828, and each is based on a Bible verse: 1 John 5:10, John 20:29, 1 John 2:1-2, Luke 22:19, and Psalms 139:9-10. The first two sermons concern aspects of faith, including the role of evidence in creating and maintaining belief and the importance of believing in Christianity's divine origin. The third sermon focuses on salvation and on Jesus Christ's role as an advocate. The fourth sermon is a lengthy discussion of Holy Communion, and the fifth sermon relates to God's omniscience and, to a lesser extent, morality.
