This book illuminates Calvin's thought by placing it in the context of the theological and exegetical traditions-ancient, medieval, and contemporary-that formed it and contributed to its particular texture. Steinmetz addresses a range of issues including the knowledge of God, the problem of iconoclasm, the doctrines of justification, and the role of the state and civil magistrate. He also clarifies the substance of Calvin's quarrels with Lutherans, Catholics, Anabaptists and assorted radicals.
