Explores the two approaches of William Perkins and Richard Hooker to the study of liturgical theology. While previous studies of Elizabethan theology have considered these two primary theologians of the English church to hold totally divergent theological approaches, they focused on either Hooker, representing Episcopal Anglicanism, or Perkins, epitomizing Puritan Calvinism. Spinks recognizes that this interpretation represents a false dichotomy. He clarifies the true depth of their divergence. A timely study of Elizabethan theology, Two Faces of Elizabethan Anglican Theology is the ideal reference source for historical theologians, students of Anglican theology, church historians, liturgists, clergy and seminary students.
