9781330958865: Seventeen Sermons on the Nativity (Classic Reprint)

Excerpt from Seventeen Sermons on the Nativity

In this volume of sermons preached upon Christmas Day, his firm grasp of the Doctrine of the Incarnation is clearly manifested and the close relation between the apprehension of this Verity, and the place in worship of the Blessed Eucharist, is particularly illustrated. To treat with fresh ness the same topic on seventeen different occasions is, as most preachers will allow, no mean test of power 5 but in these sermons of Bishop Andrewes no reader can fail to be charmed with the constant variety of treatment displayed in them, the great wealth of Scriptural illustration, and the profound depth of insight, which detects in the most seemingly insignificant details, matter of rich dog matic truth. He cuts and polishes a text, like a jeweller a diamond, and the rays of truth from its heart of light flash from every facet. As models of division and treatment, and as mines of learning and eloquent illustration, these sermons are invaluable to a preacher, and with a view to speciallyemphasising this value, an index of Scriptural references has been added to this edition. To the general reader they appeal as devout homilies, which gather many truths about the central doctrine of the Holy Incarnation, and build up Christian conduct and temper upon the sure foundation of dogmatic instruction.
