The principles of agronomy : a text-book of crop production for high-schools and short-courses in agricultural colleges
Includes bibliographical references
The name of bishop Andrewes is so reverently cherished by English Churchmen, that many will probably feed a Le of disappointment in aiding the story of his career. The fact is, that he owes his great reputation more to his gift of preaching and to the depth and beauty of his devotional life, than to the part he played in the history of the Church or in public affairs. The sphere in which he moved was but little suited to his temperament. His great literary capacity was spent in controversial encounters which were scarcely worthy of his genius. Indeed, the published work of Andrewes, like other products of English theology, is occasional in character, and the controversy with Bellarmine and Du Perron is important chiefly as throwing light on the bishop's conception of the office and mission of the English Church.
