Where the world comes to study the Bible

Thomas Hooker

Thomas Hooker in The Soul’s Preparation (1632) wrote: “I have sometimes admired (wondered) at this: why a company of gentlemen, yeomen, poor women, that are scarcely able to know their ABC’s yet have a minister to speak Latine, Greeke, and Hebrew and use the Fathers, when it is certain they know nothing at all. The reason is, because all this stings not; they may sit and sleepe in their sinnes, and goe to hell hoodwinckt, never awakened.”
