About-

Calvin@500 is an exercise in appreciative criticism and appropriation of the Reformer's work for church and society. The collection serves as an introduction to the life and thought of this sixteenth-century Reformer in his context. The book also traces Calvin's continuing legacy for political, economic, theological, spiritual, and inter-religious practices of our own time. The essays reflect the depth and breadth of Calvin scholarship from the sixteenth century to the present. They also reflect Calvin's own wide-ranging ministry: the authors are pastors, teachers, social justice workers, and theologians. Calvin@500 arose from two Canadian conferences on the occasion of the 500th anniversary of Calvin's birth.

Endorsements & Reviews-

"This volume provides a comprehensive and detailed overview of the thought and influence of John Calvin by many of the leading interpreters of Calvin today. The range of topics is quite impressive, covering many major themes of Calvin's theology, from his understanding of creation to the place of the Jews in the household of God. The volume also does a wonderful job of locating Calvin in the context of his life-long engagement with the reform of the church in France, and his own experience as a refugee from France."
Randall C. Zachman
University of Notre Dame

"This is a splendid collection of exercises in critical appreciation of Calvin. Alert to the range and depth of Calvin's achievement, and to his continuing capacity to prompt reflection, these are essays of a high order."
-John Webster
King's College, University of Aberdeen
