The legacy of a preacher reaches beyond the skillful and careful creation of one sermon, or a lifetime of sermons. Greatness in preaching is first forged and fashioned in the preacher’s soul, a soul faithful to God through the uncertainties of societal change, then vested in relevant and steadfast service to God’s creatures. Lancelot Andrewes found prominence in both. His life of 70 years (1555-1626) proved vital to the English Church as both scholar and preacher. Perhaps as significant for today’s church was his relentless example to embrace the things that mattered most, a commitment which first shaped his life, then flowed with steady strength into ministry.
