This volume of sermons written by Israel Eckerlin in 1756 represents the religious point of view of someone who was expelled from the Ephrata Cloister. His disagreements with Beissel’s philosophies (and perhaps a clash of personalities) lead to his leaving Ephrata in 1745. This volume includes thirty-five sermons written by Eckerlin (called Brother Onesimus), but also a plea to Peter Miller (Brother Jaebez) -- the Ephrata brother responsible for the Chronicon -- to publish this volume of sermons and other texts. The sermons are meditations on the broad topics of God and faith.
