Hart resisted Christianity while young, writing the pamphlet The Unreasonableness of Religion, Being Remarks and Animadversions on the Rev. John Wesley’s Sermon on Romans 8:32. However, Hart came to Christ in 1757, becoming an enormously popular preacher and hymn writer. Tens of thousands attended his funeral. His works include:
