John Calvin (1509-1564) stands with Martin Luther (1483-1546) as the premier theologian of the sixteenth-century Protestant Reformation. Calvin's thought spread throughout Europe to the New World and later throughout the whole world. His insights and influence continue to endure today, presenting a model of theological scholarship grounded in Scripture as well as providing nurture for Christian believers within churches across the globe. Dr Donald K. McKim gathers together an international array of major Calvin scholars to consider phases of Calvin's theological thought and influence. Historians and theologians meet to present a full picture of Calvin's contexts, the major themes in Calvin's writings, and the ways in which his thought spread and has increasing importance. Chapters serve as guides to their topics and provide further readings for additional study. This is an accessible introduction to this significant Protestant reformer and will appeal to the specialist and non-specialist alike.
Dr. Donald K. McKim (Ph.D., University of Pittsburgh) is executive editor for theology and reference at Westminster John Knox Press. He is the author and editor of a number of books including the Encyclopaedia of the Reformed Faith; The Dictionary of Major Biblical Interpreters; The Cambridge Companion to John Calvin; Calvin and the Bible; Historical Handbook of Major Biblical Interpreters and The Westminster Dictionary of Theological Terms, and most recently Ever a Vision: A Brief History of Pittsburgh Theological Seminary, 1959–2009
