Lancelot Andrewes the Preacher (1555-1626): The Origins of the Mystical Theology of the Church of England

Lancelot Andrewes--England's Bossuet--was James I's favorite court preacher. His sermons for the great festivals of the Christian year constitute a notable exposition of "Classical Anglicanism," the Anglicanism of those who defended the Elizabethan Settlement as the restoration of the true nature of the Christian Church, catholic and reformed. This book is the first major study of Andrewes's theology. Including long quotes from his sermons, the book shows why T.S. Eliot ranked the sermons "with the finest English prose of their time, or any time."
