This book attempts to understand Calvin in his sixteenth-century context, with attention to continuities and discontinuities between his thought and that of his predecessors, contemporaries, and successors. Richard Muller is particularly interested in the interplay between theological and philosophical themes common to Calvin and the medieval doctors, and developments in the rhetoric and argument associated with humanism.

MEDIA REVIEWS
... this is one of the most stimulating and important books on Calvin that I have read for some time ... Calvin scholars cannot afford to ignore this book. * The Journal of Theological Studies *
No Calvin scholar - or theologian - should work with Calvin without reading this learned work. * Religious Studies Review *
This detailed and perceptive work will be crucial for all interested in Calvin studies. * Religious Studies Review *
It is safe to say that anyone attempting to do serious study of Calvin's theology in our day will have to read Muller's volume. It is a tour de force in historical theology and a needed corrective to much gibberish that has been penned about the Genevan Reformer, especially in the twentieth century. * The Southern Baptist Journal of Theology *
An excellent book, one of the most important works on historical theology ... essential reading for anyone wishing to study Calvin's theology and exegesis, both as a model of critical historical methodology and for its illumination of Calvin's programme and the development of his thought. * Sixteenth Century Journal *
Muller's scholarship is so strong and his arguments so convincing that future Calvin scholars will only be able to ignore this book at their peril. * Sixteenth Century Journal *
Muller's astute analysis reveals the complex and evolving relationships among all the aspects of Calvin's ministry ... stimulating and impressive analysis. * American Historical Review *
Richard A. Muller begins this extraordinary book by doing something modern scholars too seldom do: he puts John Calvin and his thought back into their sixteenth-century historical context. * American Historical Review *
Ultimately Oxford University Press and the author are to be thanked for a work of such strength, originality, and importance. * Reviews in Religion and Theology *
