Item Description...
This volume grew out of a conference jointly sponsored by the Calvin Studies Society and the University of Notre Dame, and both the content and the spirit of the book reflect that collaboration. The contributors have much to offer their readers with regard to both Calvin studies and contemporary ecumenical dialogue. Three themes emerge in these studies. The first is that Calvin himself intended not to form a new tradition but to restore the Catholic Church to a truer form. The second theme concerns Calvin's engagement with contemporaries who remained within the Roman Catholic Church, some of whom were evangelical in their theology. Finally, this volume illustrates that some of the best contemporary research on Calvin is being done by Roman Catholics and that the Catholic and Protestant traditions have much to learn from each other. Church historians and those generally interested in the Calvinist tradition in both academic and pastoral settings will find here an engaging and thoughtful collection. The authors provide a unique contextual framework for understanding Calvin within the broader setting of the Reformed and Roman Catholic communities.Randall C. Zachman (Ph.D., University of Chicago) is associate professor of Reformation studies at the University of Notre Dame. He is the author of several books, including The Assurance of Faith: Conscience in the Theology of Martin Luther and John Calvin and John Calvin as Teacher, Pastor, and Theologian.

Publishers Description
This informative collection offers a new approach to the study of John Calvin. The authors move beyond traditional approaches to consider the influential reformer within the broader context of the Roman Catholic Church and his complicated relationship to it.Several themes emerge in these studies, including the sense in which Calvin saw himself as a church reformer rather than the founder of a new tradition; Calvin's engagement with his Roman Catholic contemporaries; and the importance of contemporary Calvin studies produced by Roman Catholic scholars. This volume provides pastors and church historians with thoughtful perspectives on Calvin's reforming work and points to an emerging ecumenical spirit in which Protestants and Roman Catholics can acknowledge that they have much to learn from each other.
