John Calvin wrote voluminously in many forms and on many topics–including philosophy, theology, the Bible, liturgy, law, economics, and more. Few thinkers in Christian history have matched his wide-ranging and prodigious scholarly output.
In this expanded edition of an invaluable resource, Wulfert de Greef guides readers through Calvin’s many writings. By exploring the historical background of each of Calvin’s works and providing helpful insights into individual texts themselves, de Greef has presented Calvin students and scholars with a clear and comprehensive guide to the thought of the great Genevan reformer. A biography of Calvin, which focuses on the main events and people with whom he dealt, is an added feature of this useful reference work.
“This new edition has incorporated the new critical editions of Calvin’s works and recent scholarship on Calvin into an already excellent work. It stands as a first, best resource for beginning students and established scholars alike.”
–Richard A. Muller, P.J. Zondervan Professor of Historical Theology, Calvin Theological Seminary
