The Endorsements

“Richard Hooker is a name that many church people have heard of, but few have ever dipped into his works . . . Brad Littlejohn brings to bear an impressive range and depth of scholarship and critical insight to set Hooker in the context of the controversies of his time, and guides us through the maze of contemporary interpretations of Hooker’s thought and significance.”

-Paul Avis, Professor of Theology, University of Leeds

“Littlejohn’s companion, Richard Hooker, offers a splendidly accessible introduction to the life and work of this eminent but popularly neglected early-modern English theologian and philosopher . . . This volume offers an excellent point of departure for both scholars and non-specialist readers.”

-Torrance Kirby, Professor of Ecclesiastical History, McGill University

“Richard Hooker is the theologian of Anglicanism. But is he a theologian for Anglicans alone? Assuredly not! In this companion to Hooker, Littlejohn has produced a clearly written and accessible work that utilizes the recent resurgence of scholarly interest in Hooker to commend him to a wider audience. . . . It is sure to be a resource of choice for those seeking a way into the thought of this great post-Reformation divine.”

-Oliver D. Crisp, Fuller Theological Seminary
