D 7 Doubt: Exploring Richard Hooker, Assurance and Salvation

£2.77

Is doubt a natural facet of faith, and can Christians ever be certain of their beliefs?

This in-depth study examines the insights of Reformation priest Richard Hooker, whose doctrine of assurance was so controversial that it led to his trial before the English monarch’s Privy Council. Hooker argued that certainty is in fact the enemy, while doubt can lead to an honest faith that allows belief in God with integrity.
