About-

Previously unpublished, the forty sermons collected here were preached by Austin Farrer during his twenty-five years as chaplain of Trinity College, Oxford (1935-60). Most of them were short biblical addresses given during Evensong, and they are offered here for Farrer devotees, and for a new generation of readers to savor.

Endorsements & Reviews-

The Times Literary Supplement

"The freshness of his approach and the simplicity of his profound understanding make his sermons a delight to read and a stimulation to further thought."
