Unusual early imprint of a Great Awakening sermon by one of its leading proponents. A fascinating piece of period interpretation in which Cennick lays out his "gospel-centric" method of interpreting the Old Testament, and from there proceeds to apply his process to the famed "mixed fabrics" passage of Deuteronomy [and Leviticus], from which he exhorts to Gospel purity and personal and corporate reformation.
John Cennick [1718-1755] was a very early co-laborer with both John Wesley and George Whitefield. When the two split, he sided with Whitefield and joined the Calvinistic Methodists, then later the Moravians.

Very crisp, clean text; complete as issued without half-title. At some point part of a larger sammelband, but now isolated with usual remains.
