The Works of Rev. Philip Doddridge contains the 10-volume edition of his collected works, five volumes of his correspondence, plus two biographical works covering the life and work of this deeply pious and influential writer and preacher. Along with Doddridge's masterwork Rise and Progress of Religion in the Soul, this collection includes his popular Life of Colonel Gardiner and A Course of Lectures on Pneumatology, Ethics, and Divinity. Over 50 sermons are included, and they cover such topics as the power and grace of Christ, regeneration, salvation, and more. A prolific hymn writer, almost 400 hymns inspired by the Old and New Testaments are included. Also included is Doddridge's Family Expositor, his beloved Gospel harmony and multi-volume commentary on the New Testament.
I know no expositor who unites so many advantages as Doddridge; whether you regard the fidelity of his version, the fullness and perspicuity of his composition, the utility of his general and historical information, the impartiality of his doctrinal comments, or, lastly, the piety and pastoral earnestness of his moral and religious applications.
—Shute Barrington, Bishop of Durham

Philip Doddridge (1702–1751) was born in London and educated at the Dissenting academy at Kibworth in Leicestershire. In 1723 he became the first principal of the Daventry Academy and started his pastorate of an independent congregation at Northampton. His popularity and influence grew with the help of his memorable sermons and successful books, and he maintained a circle of influential independent religious thinkers and writers, including fellow Dissenter Isaac Watts. He was a prolific writer, penning over 400 hymns, plus publishing tracts, sermons, books, essays, and more. In 1736, King's College and Robert Gordon's College, both in Aberdeen, awarded Doddridge a Doctorate of Divinity for his theological contributions.
The academy he started would later be formed into New College, London, and almost 300 hundred years later, the church he pastored for more than 20 years is still unofficially known as "Doddridge Church" and is located on Doddridge Street, Northampton.
