SGB 69: Isaac Watts - Holy Fortitude or Remedies Against Fear

With a submission for the approval of the Midnight Society, we call this story “Holy Fortitude, or Remedies Against Fear,” a sermon by Isaac Watts.

You can search that PDF on archive.org if you’d like to read along. Watts lived in the late 17th through mid 18th centuries in Britain.

Though he was also a theologian and the kind of philosopher who focused on the study of logic (even writing multiple books on the subject), this “Godfather of English Hymnody” preached as pastor of Mark Lane Congregational Chapel. Today’s reading is one of his sermons, based primarily on 1 Corinthians 16:13. Come back next time for a sermon by Lemuel Haynes. Suggestio...

SGB 68: Hannah More - Essays on Various Subjects - Part 9

With an appreciated breeze, Saints Gone Before is proud to present part 9 of Hannah More’s Essays on Various Subjects. Today’s reading is the final entry in this series. Hannah More lived in the 18th and 19th centuries, living life as a writer, abolitionist, and so much more. We gave a brief biography of Ms. More and this text back in episode 60, but I also recommend Karen Swallow Prior’s biography Fierce Convictions: The Extraordinary Life of Hannah More, published in 2014. Come back next time for Isaac Watts' sermon, "Holy Fortitude, or Remedies Against Fear"!
