about

Barbara Pitkin traces the way in which Calvin's exegetical labors contributed to his understanding of faith. Through detailed analysis of Calvin's interpretation of selected biblical passages, this study shows how his views evolved. Pitkin describes the gradual development of the matureCalvin's view that faith exhibits a twofold character--saving faith and providential faith--that corresponds to the twofold aspect of its object--Christ as both the incarnate and eternal Son of God.
Barbara Pitkin is at Stanford University.

"Barbara Pitkin has written a very important work, in which there are numerous insights founded upon consideration of primary sources, analysed within the developing structure of Calvin's Institutes over subsequent editions, and within his continuous output of biblicalcommentaries."--Theology
