-Publisher

John Keble (1792-1866) was a professor at the University of Oxford before he turned to pastoral work in the country parish of Hursley in Hampshire, England. Over the course of his career, he became a friend and colleague of John Henry Newman and an influential nineteenth-century British figure. His famous sermon bNational Apostasyb heralded the start of the Oxford Movement, which rediscovered the Catholic roots of Anglicanism.^This volume -- the only book of its kind -- gathers twenty-four of Keblebs best sermons spanning the liturgical year. Read as historical documents, these select homilies reveal the central preoccupations of Keblebs intellectual life, including his high sacramental theology and ecclesiology. But these works are also marked by the acute pastoral sense that made Keble beloved in his own day, and by his passionate desire that even the simplest of believers understand and embrace the life of Christian holiness. A substantial introductory essay by Maria Poggi Johnson sets Keblebs sermons in the context of Victorian religion, outlines the main themes of his thought, and suggests ways in which Keblebs homilies are relevant to contemporary Christians and students of religion.

"Sermons for the Christian Year" is a selection of sermons by John Keble, a friend and colleague of Newman and an influential figure in the Oxford Movement that rediscovered the Catholic roots of Anglicanism. The sermons, all preached after 1836, when Keble retired from the academic life of Oxford to pastoral work in the country parish of Hursley in Hampshire, span the liturgical year. Most importantly, they are marked by the acute pastoral sense that made Keble beloved and influential in his own day and by his passionate desire that the simplest members of his parish embrace in full the life of Christian holiness.
The introductory essay by Maria Poggi Johnson sets the sermons in the context of Keblebs career and the history of Victorian religion and outlines the main themes of Keblebs thought and suggests some ways in which the sermons are relevant to the contemporary Christian or student of religion.
