Item Description...
Given classic expression in the seminal Institutes of the Christian Religion, John Calvin's theology reaches from the 16th century to our own day. Partee's definitive study offers a careful exposition of Calvin's thought. His in-depth examination of the Apostles' Creed, Trinitarian God, union with Christ, and other topics provides a fresh view of Calvin's magnum opus.

Publishers Description

The theology of John Calvin was given classic expression in his "Institutes of the Christian Religion ." In this definitive work, Calvin expert Charles Partee offers a careful exposition of Calvin's theology as it appears in the "Institutes," paying special attention to the relation of Calvin's theology to the history of Christian thought and to the questions of Calvin's own time. Partee also examines the development of later Calvinism and the adaptation of Calvin's thought by his later followers. As Partee shows, Calvin's theology provides a profound exposition of Christian faith and a magnificent resource for theology today.

Very Thorough Guide to Calvin  Aug 22, 2009
2009 marks the 500th anniversary of the birth of John Calvin, Father of the Reformed Faith. This is a good year to reread the Institutes of the Christian Religion and to follow that up with this excellent book. Charles Partee, a professor of church history at Pittsburgh Theological Seminary, is a superior Calvin scholar and one of this book's strengths is his familiarity with the work of other Calvin scholars. Partee is a great admirer of Calvin which comes through clearly in this work. The book deals with the difference between the authentic John Calvin and Calvinism. After an in-depth overview of Calvin's theology, we are led on a tour of the Institues. I found this extremely helpful. It has been a while since I read the Institues end to end, but reading Partee's tour of the Institues was a very helpful refresher. Any person serious about the reformed faith would do well to read this book. It is advanced scholarship demanding serious thought and reading. The extensive footnotes are informative and offer fascinating detours, amplifications and explanations. Professor Partee knows the work of other Calvin scholars and spends a great deal of time analyzing their thought. The conclusion of the book reminds us that we cannot expect Calvin to address some of the contemporary issues in the church and in theology and the relationship between church and state and the Bible and science. He handles this discussion well.

I am a Reformed Church in America pastor and found every minute spent in this book helpful to me. It was a great refresher in Calvin and evocative discussion of many issues in the reformed faith. Partee "gets it" that theology is at its best and most worthwhile when it serves the church. Partee's book certainly did that for me. Partee spent part of his career as a pastor of churches and seems not to have forgotten that.

I would not recommend this as a primer on Calvin. Again, one should become familiar with the Institues first. An abridged version is fine. The reader would also benefit from reading an introduction to the reformed faith such as Donald McKim's introduction to the reformed faith and John Leith's introduction to the reformed tradition and an intriduction to John Calvin such as "Calvin for Armchair Theologians" before tackling this book. This at a minimum. However, any theologically trained minister or lay person should be able to garner some wholesome grain from this superior book.
