From the reviews:
"Balserak's study is important because he gives, compared with what was written in the past, a clear image of the multiform importance of God's accommodation for Calvin." (Wulfert de Greef, calvijnstudie.nl)
"Ce livre solide, intelligent, clair est une contribution importante aux etudes sur Calvin, mais aussi a une reflexion sur la revelation. L'erudition qu'il deploie sans lourdeur rend service a la pensee theologique." (Andre Gounelle, in Etudes Theologiques et Religieuses 2007/4)
"The present study is a revision of the author's doctoral thesis completed under David F. Wright (University of Edinburgh), and is the first monograph-length treatment of Calvin's understanding of divine accommodation. ... Balserak's analysis of Calvin's understanding of accommodation is an important contribution to Calvin studies. ... Balserak's work should prove of value to both students and scholars of Calvin who are seeking a clear and concise presentation of the topic." (John T. Slotemaker, Sixteenth Century Journal, Vol. XXXIX (2), 2008)
