Summary

A brief introduction to Samuel Hopkins (1721-1803). Hopkins continued Jonathan Edwards' resistance to the liberal movements of Charles Chauncy. His sermon skills were poor, but he held a deep unshakable faith in "regenerate disinterested benevolence." This led to a courageous stance against slavery, particularly notable given that his pulpit was in Newport, Rhode Island, a major slave importation port.
