Yet, several run-ins with the Genevan authorities, and strong methodological differences over how Scripture was to be translated separated the two and resulted in Castellio resignation in 1544.By 1553 Castellio was an open enemy of the Genevan authorities openly condemning them for persecuting heretics. By 1554, Castellio was in open conflict with Calvin himself over Calvin articulations of predestination and providence in both his Institutes and his Concerning the Eternal Punishment of God.
This book, The Secret Providence of God is the account of this debate. Yet, the history of that debate is hard to nail down. Calvin's repudiation (what this current book contains) of Castellio is accompanied by 14 essays that challenge Calvin's view of predestination and providence. Also included is Calvin's articulate and thorough response. For those seeking a deeper understanding of Calvin's preeminent and defining doctrine, this is the book. It not only rearticulates what is found in the Institutes, but develops it further in light of the common objections that have always followed his doctrines, both during the Reformation and today.

This new edition reintroduces John Calvin's neglected work on the doctrine of divine providence. Includes an introduction and notes by prominent British theologian Paul Helm.
JOHN CALVIN (15091564) was perhaps the preeminent theologian of the Reformation. Known best for his Institutes of the Christian Religion, he also wrote landmark expositions on most of the books in the Bible.
Paul Helm is a teaching fellow at Regent College, Vancouver, where he was previously the J. I. Packer Professor of Philosophical Theology. Before going to Regent he was professor of history and philosophy of religion at King's College in London. His books include Eternal God; The Providence of God; Faith with Reason; John Calvin's Ideas; and John Calvin: A Guide for the Perplexed.
