Asahel Nettleton (1783-1844) is America's forgotten evangelist. Born in Connecticut, Nettleton's preaching was used by God in the conversion of over 30,000 souls during what is known as America's 'Second Great Awakening.'
Nettleton was vehemently opposed to the 'new measures' and the 'anxious bench' popularized by Charles Grandison Finney. Finney's new measures and use of the 'anxious bench' were the predecessors to today's 'altar call.'
In this sermon read by Pastor Jon Cardwell, Nettleton delivers yet another sermon full of Biblical, doctrinal truths.
This full sermon was included in the book written by Dr. Bennet Tyler entitled, 'The Remains of the Late Rev. Asahel Nettleton.' Published in 1845, the book and the sermon are in the public domain.
Great Narrations As a person who also narrates sermons etc. for Sermon Audio, I love to find other good narrations, and I would say the ones of Nettleton and A Bonar are among the best I have heard here. Not to mention, anyone who would narrate Bonar and Nettleton has a love for the same great literature that I like to narrate so keep up the good work.
Perhaps one of the most anointed evangelists of the 19th century's "Second Great Awakening," Asahel Nettleton preached very solemn, reverent, dignified messages without written notes, relying on the power of the Holy Spirit through the reverent exposition of Biblical doctrines...
