Product Description

In this exploration of Calvin's political thought, Roland Boer treats Calvin as a biblical scholar and political philosopher, showing us elusive aspects of Calvin's Institutes. Boer investigates Calvin's careful thinking in the Institutes as well as in his biblical commentaries, pursuing Calvin's understanding of political freedom. Calvin argued for a greater freedom for the faith than theologians had imagined but then stepped back from the most radical implications of this call. Boer also explores Calvin's views on grace with the eye of a careful interpreter, and suggests what we might find in Calvin's political thought if we took the Bible, grace, and freedom as seriously as Calvin did.

    In a nutshell, the writer imagines what it would have been like to sleep with one of the reformers. Hard to believe this book got published.
