This outstanding collection of essays, edited by distinguished scholars Billings and Hesselink, explores the headwaters of John Calvin's theology in the sixteenth century, and maps out major tributaries of his religious thought to the present day. Readers will learn much from this penetrating study of the reception, development, and (sometimes) misappropriation of Calvin's rich theological legacy.

Associate Professor of Church History, Trinity Evangelical Divinity School, Deerfield, Illinois
Billings and Hesselink have offered both the novice and mature scholar new avenues into Calvin's thought, by providing an innovative method of directly combining considerations of various topics in Calvin's theology with the reception histories of those topics. This advance allows for the serious grappling with the traditions in which all students and scholars work; genuinely providing a gift for Calvin scholarship, and a model to be explored for historical theology.
