“Witherspoon’s sermons were distinguished for their judicious and perspicuous divisions – for mingling profound remarks on human life, along with the illustration of divine truth – and for the lucid order that reigned through the whole. In his discourses, he loved to dwell chiefly on the great doctrines of divine grace, and on the distinguishing truths of the gospel.” – John Rodgers.
