Richard Hooker's Theology

Full Product Description

In spite of the differing, and often conflicting interpretations, there have been several constants - beliefs about Hooker and his work that have remained virtually unchallenged throughout the centuries. 'Richard Hooker, Beyond Certainty' examines and calls into question three of these constants. The first to be challenged is the fundamental belief that Hooker is attached securely to the English Church and that their identities are so interwoven that to speak of one is to speak of the other. The second is that Hooker's prose - his unique writing style and powerful rhetoric - can be ignored in the process of assessing his theology. The third is the widely-held belief that, as the 'champion of reason', Hooker's faith is essentially rational and that God is perceived and experienced primarily through the intellect. Challenging the truth of each of these statements leads to an uncertainty about Hooker which, rather than negating scholarship, allows research to be liberated from the dominance of categorisation. Such a change, it is suggested, would acknowledge that Hooker's theology transcends Anglican studies and allows his radical thinking to reach a wider audience.
