In The Application of Redemption, Thomas Hooker (1586–1647) explains the doctrine of conversion from sin and self to the salvation in Christ. Knowing that the sinner will not turn to God while his heart is self-satisfied, Hooker examines the way that God brings about a “contrite and humble spirit” fit for His dwelling (Isaiah 57:15). While Hooker spends much space discussing conviction of Sin, he is equally quick to hold forth the all-sufficiency of God in Christ.
