Overview

Richard Hooker is perhaps the most prominent Anglican theologian and priest of the sixteenth century. He left a legacy of reason, tolerance, and tradition in the Anglican Church, along with Thomas Cranmer and Matthew Parker. All of his works are contained in this three volume collection, including his most famous works, A Learned Discourse of Justification, Works, and How the Foundation of Faith is Overthrown and Of the Laws of Ecclesiastical Polity. Hooker believed that Christians should focus on common unifiers, rather than on derisive doctrines. Hooker also emphasized the importance of understanding issues like biblical interpretation, ethics, sanctification, and soteriology when reading the Scriptures and this is apparent throughout all his works.

The Works of Richard Hooker (3 Vols.) contains over 1,800 pages of advice and exposition on many topics for both laity and ministers, making this collection an invaluable resource for pastors, general readers, and anyone interested in one of the most influential theologians of the sixteenth century. Hooker’s stance on solid doctrine, tolerance and commonality continue to inspire and guide Christians today. With the Logos edition of Hooker’s works, his writings and doctrine are even more accessible than ever before. All Scripture references are linked with the Bibles in your library, making study and comparison easy and fast.
