It examines his life (1647–98), letters, sermons, books, and the role he played in resisting Louis XIV’s persecution of the Huguenots until his death on the scaffold in 1698.

As a critical, scholarly biography, Bellicose Dove revises the apologetic picture painted by 19th-century writers of Brousson as a pious pacifist. It explores his flirtation with treason in the 1683 Toulouse Project and his invitation to the duc de Schomberg to invade France and end the Revocation in 1690–91, as well as his and François Vivent’s use of violence inside France.
