For the present excellent edition, I can imagine no one better qualified than Steve McGrade to introduce this great work of English prose to a new generation of readers, and I congratulate Oxford University Press for taking it on and for producing three such elegant and legible volumes ... Every library interested in English literature, philosophy, theology, and the European Reformation should acquire it forthwith. Brian Vickers, Review of English Studies This is a very useful ... edition of this major work, attractive and easy to use while still suitable for most scholarly purposes Nigel Voak, Journal of Ecclesiastical History Ever since gauden, Hooker's editors have used their introductions to decribe Hooker's life and readership, to summarize his argument, and to extol the majesty of his style. McGrade is no exception. Scott Mandelbrote, The Times Literary Supplement Hooker fans everywhere should be delighted by what will now surely become the standard critical edition of a breathtaking work of Anglican erudition and argument. Lee Gatiss, Churchman
