From the cover: Sep 9, 2005
From the back of the book: The influence of John Calvin (1509-1564) reaches from the Reformation to Karl Barth and beyond. Outstanding as biblical scholar, preacher, and practical Church reformer, Calvin intended all his work to serve the Word of God. Although couched in sixteenth-century terms, his theology drew on the wealth of previous Christian thought and continues to be relevant to the situation of the Church today. This book is a comprehensive introduction to the whole range of Calvin's theology. Concentrating on Calvin's major work, The Institutes of the Christian Religion, the author explains its relevance to Christians of all times. This volume will give readers a full and serious sense of Calvin both as a Christian and as a thinker.
