Foreword by Bishop Geoffrey Rowell 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 "National Apostasy" 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 Keble's best sermons spanning the liturgical year. Read as historical documents, these select homilies reveal the central preoccupations of Keble's intellectual life, including his high sacramental theology and ecclesiology.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 Keble's sermons in the context of Victorian religion, outlines the main themes of his thought, and suggests ways in which Keble's homilies are relevant to contemporary Christians and students of religion.
