Early Evangelicalism

Sarah Prince Gill

Oxford University Press

This chapter presents excerpts from Sarah Prince Gill's open letter, “To all my young Acquaintance, into whose hands these lines may come,” dated in 1755 but published only ten years later. Sarah was the daughter of Thomas Prince, a Boston minister and evangelical pastor who supported the Great Awakening. In her letter, Sarah pleads for her audience to commit their lives fully to God and to respond to His offer of salvation. She warns her readers that God's judgment awaits those who refuse to turn to Christ.
