Editorial Reviews

"In the recent past, The Cambridge Companion series has produced a bevy of helpful undergraduate-level textbooks which also serve as first port of call for more serious academic inquiry, ranging from the history of jazz, to Arabic philosophy, and now to John Calvin: a quintessential sixteenth-century reformer whos scope of influence--both then and now--simply transcends that of Geneva and the Francophone world...The Cambridge Companion to John Calvin is a welcome addition both to the Cambridge Companion series itself and to Calvin studies in general."
