The Anglican Expositor is pleased to present this new edition of Isaac Williams’ Sermons on the Epistles and Gospels for Sundays and Holy Days Throughout the Year. Originally published in two volumes in the mid-19th Century, the text is now fully re-typset and offered in a single volume with up-to-date formatting. While studying at Trinity College, Oxford Williams’ poetry caught the eye of John Keble, who took Williams under his wing. After his graduation and ordination Williams went on to assist John Newman as curate of St. Mary’s, Oxford. He became known for his able exposition of Scripture. These sermons are fine examples of the art of expositional preaching. In each sermon Williams begins with a solid exposition of the day’s Epistle as a lead-in to an exposition of the Gospel. He ties both together with the unifying theme of the day and then concludes with excellent devotional thoughts and practical application. Every set of “propers” from the eucharistic lectionary of the 1662 Book of Common Prayer is covered. These sermons are both an excellent devotional aid to the Church Year for laymen and a homiletic treasure trove for the preacher.
