"A splendid new biography . . . [Dr. Secor] has read widely and well in the relevant sources , , , and has deployed the material available in new and insightful ways. Hooker rises up, miraculously reborn for our century, from the pages of this biography . . . rediscovered for our century" W. Speed Hill, general editor, "The Folger Library Edition of the Works of Richard Hooker." 7 volumes. 1977-1998 -- pre-publication review
"Dr. Secor's work will encourage those who look for a common ecclesia identity to go back and read again the works of Richard Hooker." The Revd. David Stancliffe, Bishop of Salisbury (England) -- pre-publication review
"In a balanced presentation we meet Hooker the man, Hooker the theologian, and Hooker the author of ecclesiology. Secor's text is smooth and inviting; his admiration for his subject does not cloud his judgement--rather it testifies to the compelling qualities of Hooker's thought and piety. One comes away grateful for Dr. Secor's efforts and insights." The Revd. Paul V. Marshall, Bishop of the Episcopal Diocese of Bethlehem, PA -- pre-publication review
