Bishop Andrewes was one of the foremost Biblical scholars of his time. He also was one of the translators of the King James Version of the Bible and was King James' favorite preacher. The Devotions of Bishop Andrewes was originally entitled, Preces Privatae, which translates to "Private Devotions." They are the private, intimate prayers of a very public and pious man. Andrewes was not motivated to write these devotions out of a desire to publish them. These devotions were written from Andrewes' heart out of love and devotion for our Lord. Andrewes is said to have spent five hours in prayer every day. Included in the collection are devotions for the morning and evening that he employed during his time alone with God.
