Product Description

From the leading Scholar on the Reformed theological tradition comes a critical analysis of the soteriological continuity between Calvin, his precursors, and the post-reformation Reformed theologians.

The degree to which "Calvinists" stood in strict line with Calvin is an exceptionally complicated issue. Richard Muller's stance is, and has been for many years, that the tradition that followed Calvin's seminal work is both congruent and disparate from that of its iconic figure.But in which ways is it similar? And in what regards does it differ?

Salvation and sovereignty are too central concerns of the Reformed tradition, and it is these interrelated subject s that Calvin and the Reformed Tradition chiefly explore. Richard Muller notes the specifics of the tradition, discusses the various-and at times surprisingly varied ways-in which Reformed thinkers before (Theodore Beza, Peter Martyr Vermigli) and after (Perkins, Polanus, Ames, etc.) Calvin understood salvation, predestination, and God's sovereignty. With Calvin as the center point, Muller examines the way the discussion unfolded historically and with attention to specific questions such as Limited Atonement, the Ordo Salutis, and "union with Christ".

Publisher's Description

Richard Muller, a world-class scholar of the Reformation era, examines the relationship of Calvin's theology to the Reformed tradition, indicating Calvin's place in the tradition as one of several significant second-generation formulators. Muller argues that the Reformed tradition is a diverse and variegated movement not suitably described either as founded solely on the thought of John Calvin or as a reaction to or deviation from Calvin, thereby setting aside the old "Calvin and the Calvinists" approach in favor of a more integral and representative perspective. Muller offers historical corrective and nuance on topics of current interest in Reformed theology, such as limited atonement/universalism, union with Christ, and the order of salvation.
