Andrewes is a truly wonderful writer and it seems a shame that his work is comparatively little known. His insistence on the importance of specific linguistic understanding of the Bible makes these texts very illuminating to a study of early Protestant thought. Any student of John Donne should also find a comparison of his prose style with Andrewes' interesting. This edition contains a few of Andrewes' sermons in complete form and a number of extracts from others. Sadly for the student of Andrewes, the critical content of the edition is minimal. However, this is nonetheless very well worth reading both for the beauty of Andrewes' mastery of language and the interest of his writings in their historical and literary context.
