Show Summary Details


This chapter discusses John Hooper's theology. The first section introduces his three treatises which are vital to his doctrine of salvation, discussed in the succeeding sections. The second section examines A Declaration of Christ and his Office. The third section looks at A Declaration of the Ten Holy Commandments of Almighty God. The fourth section considers A Godly Confession. Hooper's soteriology was strongly Christological and placed very little emphasis on the role of the Father or the Holy Spirit. He placed great emphasis upon the role of ignorance in man's predicament, and saw knowledge as a major factor in man's salvation. Meanwhile, his discussion of election, reprobation, justification, and the use of law are indebted to Melanchthon.
