Thomas Hooker, Samuel Stone, and Their Terrifying God

Baird Tipson

Oxford Studies in Historical Theology

  • First thorough study of Thomas Hooker in almost forty years, reflecting four decades of new scholarship
  • First study to draw heavily on Samuel Stone's Whole Body of Divinity, an indispensable resource for the study of early New England religion
  • Posits Hooker not as a passive observer of religious experience in his hearers but an active creator
  • Explores the relationship of New England Puritanism to later American evangelicalism
