Reviews

"A finely accomplished project, a considerable editorial achievement, and a useful addition to Hooker studies. Libraries that cover sixteenth-century English theology, literature and politics will need to invest in this book. Teachers as well as students of Hooker will want to have it to hand." - Paul Avis, University of Exeter, in: Ecclesiology 8/3 (2012), pp. 416- 420 "This Companion is an excellent introduction to a complex and often verbose theologian, and in places it is clearer on Hooker's thought than he was himself". - Bryan Spinks, Yale University, in: Church History and Religious Culture 90/2-3 (2010) "Hooker, sein Werk und dessen Wirkungsgeschichte werden mit ansteckender Liebe zum Detail in ihre ursprunglichen geschichtlichen Bezuge eingeordnet". - Martin Ohst, Bergische Universitat Wuppertal, in: Sehepunkte, 10/3 (2010)
