"John Marshall's sophisticated new intellectual biography, which draws on unpublished manuscripts and relatively neglected works as well as Locke's better known writings, goes a long way toward making sense of this brilliant but complex thinker. Rather than search for a deeper, underlying consistency in Locke's thought, Marshall explores how Locke came to change his mind so dramatically over the course of his life in response to changing political circumstances, new personal contacts, and (perhaps above all) through his own process of intellectual inquiry...This is an impressive book." Tim Harris, Brown University, Journal of Modern History "...[an] erudite, carefully developed study...this is an important work in the history of social, political, and philosophical thought." Journal of Church and State "Anyone interested in the relation of theology to the founding father of American liberalism will find this volume essential reading." Theological Studies " once textually acute and theoretically grand...[a] superb and detailed study..." The Review of Politics "...this study is an impressive scholarly achievement and a major contribution to the understanding of Locke's moral and religious thought." Julian H. Franklin, American Historical Review "This is a very good book. It presents the historical context in which Locke's doctrine emerged clearly and intelligently...It is also the most careful and comprehensive treatment of Locke's political theology I have read." Edward G. Andrew, Albion
