Very rare first edition of the sermons and experimental theology of John Erskine [b.1721]. Erskine was one of the most significant voices defending the work of Whitefield at Cambuslang, even publishing a defense arguing that the Revival may well be the final great work of grace that ushered in the final reign of Jesus. He also corresponded extensively on subjects related to revival and experimental Christianity with Jonathan Edwards.
First edition of his works in which we can hear echoes of his conversations with Edwards, those precious days of Sacrament during the Cambuslang Revival, and his desire for a genuinely supernatural, Spirit-inspired Christianity.
