Life and Times of John Hooper (c. 1500-1555) Bishop of Gloucester
|Author: ||Hunt, E. W.|
This is the first full-scale examination of the words and works of the sixteenth-century bishop and martyr known as `the father of Puritanism'. After a comparatively detailed account of Hooper's life, the study examines his theology at length and concludes with a chapter on his legacy, emphasizing at the end the relevance of his beliefs to the problems facing the Church in our own day and age.
". . . a conscientious study and should encourage others to journey back to Gloucester and view for themselves a remarkable experiment in mid-16th-century pastoral practice." - The Expository Times
