A champion for Anglican cause for his rejection of doctrine of transubstantiation and the Calvanist doctrine of predestination, Lancelot Andrewes was hailed by T. S. Eliot as one of the Fathers of the Church of England. His sermons were dubbed by Eliot as ‘one of the finest English prose of their time’. A bishop in a period that spans four monarchic ruling, Lancelot Andrewes was a witness to the Church of the early centuries and the Reformation Era. This book probes on Lancelot Andrewes, who is one of the significant figures in the history of Christian theology and spirituality. It aims to look at the theological meditations of Lancelot Andrewes to discover the controversies of the Reformation Era, the relationship of theology and the life of prayer and the relationship between the East and West Christendom. In this book, the sermons of Andrewes from 1500s to the 1600s are examined to determine his thoughts and theological perspective. Relatively unpopular today, the book includes long citations of Andrewes's sermons that offer glimpses of his thought and his theology.
