A Book Recommendation: Something old made new [Anglican]

A Book Recommendation: Something old made new.

Philip Secor has created a cottage industry in presenting a series of well-written books on that gifted defender of Anglicanism, Richard Hooker. Secor’s books include a fine biography of Hooker as well as a short compilation of his sermons in modern idiom. Perhaps his best work is really something that he didn’t write—Hooker’s fifth book in the Ecclesiastical Polity. The fifth book is presented as a stand alone volume and retitled Richard Hooker on Anglican Faith and Worship. Secor has done a wonderful service in rendering the entire text in contemporary phrasing without altering the meaning. This is a recommended read for all laity in classical Anglicanism and a must read for the clergy. It is an excellent opportunity to get a glimpse into the mind of one of the great thinkers of the Anglican tradition.
