In his discussion of the ‘Practical Divinity’ of these writings, John Stafford seeks to illustrate the extent to which these sermons reveal Hooker to be a man of deep pastoral insight and vision, and how they bring into view a unique sense of convergence of the theoretical and practical elements of his thought. Stafford’s essay centres specifically on an analysis of A Learned Sermon of the Nature of Pride—Hooker’s exposition of Habakkuk 2:4. The sermon reveals Hooker displaying all of his skills as Biblical exegete, theologian, rational debater, and concerned pastor.

On 14 August 1579 he was ordained deacon by John Aylmer, bishop of London. On 9 October 1580 Hooker was briefly expelled from Oxford along with three other fellows and his former tutor and lifelong friend, John Rainolds, who was known for his strong Puritan sympathies. The expulsion occurred because he and his friends had opposed the replacement of the president of the College, William Cole, by John Barfoot, a rigorous advocate of conformity to the Book of Common Prayer. Hooker and all his colleagues were restored by the following 4 November after Rainolds had assumed the presidency.

Gibbs While Hooker was at Bishopsbourne, Book V of the Lawes was completed and published in 1597, again with Sandys’ financial sponsorship,42 and with extensive revisions that nearly doubled the length of an earlier draft. Book V was the last book of the Lawes to be published in Hooker’s lifetime. Book V of the Lawes is both a defence of the Book of Common Prayer against the objections of the disciplinarians who contended that it was full of superstitious practices ‘culled out of that popish dunghill, the Masse Booke,’ and, without divorcing the book from its polemical context, it provides a constructive exposition of those practices by showing that in the Prayer Book ‘True Religion’ could indeed be the ‘roote of all true virtues and the stay of all well ordered common-wealthes,’43 thereby confirming Hooker’s reputation as its foremost interpreter as well as apologist.
