Historical Context of the Institutes as a Work in Theology - The True and Triune God: Calvin's Doctrine of the Holy Trinity - Election and Predestination: The Sovereign Expressions of God - A Shattered Vase: The Tragedy of Sin in Calvin's Thought - Calvin's Interpretation of the History of Salvation: The Continuity and Discontinuity of the Covenant - Justification and Union with Christ - Appropriating Salvation: The Spirit, Faith and Assurance, and Repentance - Ethics: The Christian Life and Good Works according to Calvin - Calvin, Worship, and the Sacraments - Calvin's Doctrine of the Last Things: The Resurrection of the Body and the Life Everlasting
This book is the work of a team of scholars . . . . Full advantage is taken of the current cottage industry of Calvin studies, which has achieved already notable insights in many areas. The essays vary in technical level, but are all strong and clear for the wayfaring man, and some are outstanding. They add up to a very valuable volume, which I commend with enthusiasm. For making Calvin known today as well as once he was, and in every age deserves to be, this really is a major step forward. J. I. Packer, Professor of Theology, Regent College, Vancouver
As a contribution to the celebrations marking the 500th anniversary of Calvins birth, this collection of essays is to be warmly welcomed. If this symposium leads people back to read Calvins Institutes for themselves, it will have fulfilled a good purpose. Professor A.T.B. McGowan, Principal of the Highland Theological College, Scotland
