  • The contributions draw on the latest research that draws together theological, lived, and cultural influences on a dynamic religious movement
  • Offers fresh perspectives on Calvin's thought and influence and explores the broad spectrum in which they have been manifested over four hundred years in doctrine, institutions, literature, art, politics, and popular culture
  • Places the legacy of Calvin in the context of the many other figures and influences that shaped Calvinism
