Dig into all of Calvin's collected works, as well as the works of his contemporary interpreters, to examine the distinction between God the Creator and God the Redeemer---and to explore the relation of this twofold knowledge. Includes four appendixes of critical statements on Calvin. 284 pages, softcover from Eerdmans.
"Eerdmans' third edition of Dowey's The Knowledge of God in Calvin's Theology is both a welcomed and noteworthy publishing event, welcomed because its publication makes available for a new generation Dowey's substantive analysis of Calvin's thought and noteworthy because its author's breadth of scholarship, then and now, endows the work, with its expanded appendices, with a lively, penetrat-ing, and judicious perspective from which to assess Calvin's theological genius. With incisive clarity, Dowey both explains and criticizes Calvin's principle of the duplex cognitio domini, illuminating how the Reformer's concept of the knowledge of God the Creator and the knowledge of God the Redeemer controls and contributes to the whole of Calvin's thought. Although first published over forty years ago, Dowey's comprehensive study still remains the best on the subject." - Theology Today
