Reviews - What do customers think about Calvin and Classical Philosophy (Interpretation Bible Studies)?
Calvin and Classical Philopsophy Sep 7, 2007
This is such an informative book on John Calvin's educational influences. Partee is able to counter those who depict Calvin and his theology as both anti-intellectual as well as anti-humanistic. Calvin's balance of both Augustinian and Athanasian influences combine with fresh insights. I am most impressed with Calvin's strong Christocentric persepctive on the larger issues of biblical hermeneutics. The theological phrase "Union with Christ" is a much more dynamic term than "predestinated!" I heartily recommend this book to all who wish to broaden their viewpoint on John Calvin's spiritual genius. Partee's book should be read in conjunction with his collaboration with Andrew Purves on the book "Encountering God: Christian Faith in Turbulent Times."
