Item Description...
Overview
This well documented and detailed analysis of the theological first principles of the "father of Anglicanism" challenges the traditional consensus. The author examines three key elements of Hooker's theology, namely the authority of reason, tradition and Scripture and evaluates Hooker's approach in the light of his debates with contemporary Puritans.

Publishers Description
There is no doubt that Richard Hooker (1554-1600) is one of the most important writers in the history of the Church of England. However, since John Henry Newman presented him as a "theologian of the via media" he has been consistently overlooked by evangelical Anglicans. This well-documented and detailed analysis of the theological first principles of the 'father of Anglicanism' challenges the traditional consensus. The author examines three key elements of Hooker's theology-namely, the authority of reason, tradition and Scripture and evaluates Hooker's approach in the light of his debates with contemporary Puritans including Walter Travers, Thomas Cartwright and William Tyndale. His views are then compared with the approaches of Erasmus and the Reformers Luther and Calvin. Finally, the interpretations of leading and influential Hooker scholars are examined to show how often his theological principles have been misrepresented. This important study concludes that Hooker's debt to the Reformation is greater and more profound than generally acknowledged and that Hooker is consistently closer the mainstream of Reformation thought than his Puritan opponents. "This book is sure to put the cat among the pigeons of Hooker scholarship, and reopen the question of interpretations which many have assumed were resolved." -Gerald Bray, Beeson Divinity School "A lucid, penetrating and immensely relevant study of Hooker's theological method which firmly repudiates the influential High church stereotype of Hooker."- Alister McGrath, from the foreword An ordained priest with the Church of England, Nigel T. Atkinson is Warden of Latimer House, Oxford.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Hooker in Simplicity  Jul 18, 2008
The author appears to be an Evangelical who is seeking to demonstrate that Hooker is not the architect of the famous "via media," but rather an historic Protestant well within the confines of the Reformation's position on Scripture, reason and tradition. I think the writer does a fine job of describing Hooker's approach to tradition as compared with Hooker's own words in his "Laws of Ecclesiastical Polity," but I was less than impressed by the author's brief synopsis of Luther's and Calvin's approach to Scripture, reason and tradition. These are complex issues that transcend someone's master's thesis, despite Alister McGrath's warm endorsement.
