Evidences of Christianity Briefly Stated and the New Testament Proved to Be Genuine. In Three Judicious and Excellent Sermons.

by Philip Doddridge


During the 18th century, England produced some of Protestant Christianity's greatest hymnwriters, including Isaac Watts, Charles Wesley, and Philip Doddridge. As well as writing hundreds of hymns ('O Happy Day' perhaps the most famous), Doddridge founded a theological training school in Northampton, where he taught philosophy, theology, and biblical languages. A contemporary of Europe's Enlightenment movement, Doddridge witnessed countless once-orthodox scholars adopt popular deist philosophies. In response, he gave three sermons defending the tenets of the Christian faith, especially the supernatural ones deists promptly dismissed. The Evidences of Christianity Briefly Stated contains these three sermons.
