This book was originally published in 1858. Dr. Taylor was for ten years pastor of the Center Church in New Haven, Connecticut, before called to the Theological Chair in Yale College. These sermons were written during this period, and preached in the ordinary course of ministerial duty. Many of them had reference to a state of deep religious interest in his congregation, with which his ministry was so frequently blessed.
