“Unto a Christian man, there can be nothing either more necessary or profitable than the knowledge of Holy Scripture; forasmuch as in it is contained God’s true word.”

Certain Sermons or Homilies, ‘A Fruitful Exhortation to the Reading and Knowledge of Holy Scripture’

 

The Books of Homilies are a set of sermons which developed the reformed doctrines of the Church of England. These sermons were collected into a work entitled “Certain Sermons or Homilies Appointed to Be Read in Churches.” Many of the thirty-three sermons are straightforward encouragements to the listener for them to read the Bible and pray every day. Others still are essentially treatises teaching church leaders theology, church history, and heresies within the Catholic Church.

 

Originally, the homilies were published in two books beginning in 1547 concluding in 1571. While the sermons were written and delivered by numerous preachers, the writings in the second portion were mainly written by Bishop John Jewel, whose focus was on teaching on living a model Christian life.

 

This rare 1683 printing of ‘Homilies’ includes the 39-Articles outlining the doctrines and practices of the Church of England.
