These thirty-two “sermons” or declarations of Stephen Crisp were all delivered extemporaneously in meetings in and about London between the years 1687 and 1692, and were taken down in short-hand and later published by an anonymous person who was deeply impacted by them. In his preface to the sermons, the unknown publisher assures the reader that “he has not in the least altered or imposed upon the preacher’s sense, either in the taking or transcribing of them.” And though he says he is not, nor ever was, a member of the Society of friends, yet he found these sermons “to contain so many gospel truths, delivered with such plainness, zeal and demonstration, and generally agreeable to the known doctrines of Christianity, that it is hoped the publishing of them may be useful to the world.”

Friends Library Publishing exists to freely share the writings of early members of the Religious Society of Friends (Quakers), believing that no other collection of Christian writings more accurately communicates or powerfully illustrates the soul-transforming power of the gospel of Jesus Christ.

In his preface to the sermons, the unknown publisher assures the reader that “he has not in the least altered or imposed upon the preacher’s sense, either in the taking or transcribing of them.” And though he says he is not, nor ever was, a member of the Society of friends, yet he found these sermons “to contain so many gospel truths, delivered with such plainness, zeal and demonstration, and generally agreeable to the known doctrines of Christianity, that it is hoped the publishing of them may be useful to the world.” (Original title: Scripture Truths Demonstrated In Thirty-Two Sermons, Or Declarations of Stephen Crisp, Late of Colchester, in Essex, Deceased.
