Finally filling the gap between specialist volumes and ‘companion texts’, Charles Miller's rigorous and well written exploration of the works and theology of Richard Hooker is a comprehensive and critical testament to one of the most important founders of Anglican thought

Miller introduces the main theological topics in Hooker’s writings and identifies his distinctive contribution to the emergence of Anglicanism via discussion of such themes as Hooker’s conception of God, of Mankind and of the place of Scripture in the Church. These discussions are deeply founded on Hooker's own works and Miller makes good use of the yet un-translated work L’Anglicanisme de Richard Hooker by Olivier Loyer, which has not been frequently cited in English language scholarship until now.

Richard Hooker and the Vision of God is a groundbreaking new text that serves as both an introduction to, and substantive analysis of, this hugely influential sixteenth-century theologian.
