DOCUMENT INFO
Description: Ussher's iought was dominated by what Cunningham calls the justice motif, strongly influenced by Israelite biblicism and the prophetic tradition; Bramhall's by the numinous motif, emphasizing community, the sacred, and the priestly. Cunningham's chapters on theology explore these beliefs in their writings very convincingly, but much of the value of the book lies in the later chapters on secular and ecclesiastical politics, and here the formal antithesis between two world-views seems less essential.
