'Why the focus on Hooker during recent days on this blog? It is the basis of an emerging project that seeks to explore Hooker's defence of aspects of the BCP daily office. His response to Cartwright's Calvinist critique of the BCP was not merely a dispute over liturgical preferences in the context of a shared Reformed theological framework (as some contemporary evangelical Anglican readings attempt to suggest). Rather, in Hooker's apologia regarding, for example, the liturgical use of the Gospel canticles, or the daily praying of the psalms, these practices have profound theological significance, particularly in that they enact a sacramental imagination.'
