Reformed historical theology; v.12

BS500

This study by Harms (Interim Chaplain at Bethany Nursing Home in Ripon, California) analyses the ecclesiology of John Calvin via his commentative works of the late 1550's on the Minor Prophets. Calvin's view of Christianity is a dynamic one in that it is very much aligned with the earliest ecclesiological practices in Israel. This fact makes Calvin's ecclesiology stand apart from other reformists of the era. The author explores these dynamics at length and draws informative conclusions based on them in this volume appealing to those engaged in the study of theology and religious history.
