Product Description

In this volume of the Abingdon Pillars of Theology George W. Stroup, treats arguably the most widely influential theologian since the Reformation, John Calvin As such, this book serves as an introduction to both Calvin's life and his theology which are, according to Stoup, "inseparable" if Calvin is to be understood rightly. Calvin cannot be understood apart from historical context, for it is in his context that his theology that has transcended so many cultural, denominational, and religious obstacles, was forged. Thus, Stroup sets Calvin in his historical context first, and then moves to understand Calvin's thought primarily through his magisterial Institutes of the Christian religion. This book will make an excellent resource for church study groups and for introductory college courses on Calvin, or on Theology. Stroup's writing is clear and brings Calvin's theology to life in a way that will help even the most complacent learn a great deal.

Publisher's Description

Abingdon Pillars of Theology is a series for the college and seminary classroom designed to help students grasp the basic and necessary facts, influence, and significance of major theologians. Written by noted scholars, these books outline the context, methodology, organizing principles, primary contributions, and key writings of people who have shaped theology as we know it today.

John Calvin (1509-1564) continues to be read and discussed because he illumines our human experience. Although inseparable from his context, Calvin's theology speaks for itself, thus identifying ways Calvin remains a living voice for those who struggle with the  meaning of Christian faith.
