This volume contains twenty sermons on sin and salvation. Each sermon is preached with a clear view of sin in mind, and outlines the necessity and benefits of redemption in Christ. In these sermons, Shedd outlines the doctrine of the atonement, and argues that only the atonement completely meets and satisfies God’s demands of human beings. Shedd preaches against the pervasive sins of his time and ours—the doctrine of natural virtue, innate goodness, and self-reliance.

William Greenough Thayer Shedd

William Shedd (1820–1894) is considered one of the greatest theologians of the American Presbyterian church. He studied at the University of Vermont under James Marsh, where he encountered the writings of Samuel Taylor. Shedd graduated from Andover Theological Seminary in 1843 and, soon after, became a minister for a congregational church in Vermont for two years.

Shedd taught at many universities, including University of Vermont, Auburn Theological Seminary, Andover Theological Seminary, and Union Theological Seminary. While at Union, Shedd defended the Reformed theology of Old School Presbyterian against the increasing influence of modernism and higher criticism.

One of Shedd’s better-known titles is Dogmatic Theology. Other titles include A History of Christian Doctrine and The Doctrine of Endless Punishment, which can be found in the William G. T. Shedd Collection.
