Overview

Richard Hooker (1554-1600) is the premier theologian of the Anglican religious tradition. Portions of his great apologia for Anglicanism, Of the Laws of Ecclesiastical Polity—still required reading in most Anglican seminaries—has been seminal for most Anglican theologians since the early seventeenth century. Unfortunately, Hooker’s defining ideas about the Church, the sacraments, Holy Scripture, the incarnation, prayer, worship, the Trinity, church polity, and virtually every aspect of Anglican faith and worship are no longer accessible to most Christians. His writing style is too cumbersome for most modern readers to untangle. This is especially so of the most important of all of his religious writings: book five of the Polity. To remedy this problem, and make Hooker’s timeless wisdom once again available to Christians inside the Anglican family and without, Dr. Secor has rendered Hooker’s difficult prose in book five into contemporary English, continuing the process of translation begun in his acclaimed, The Sermons of Richard Hooker: A Modern Edition.
