The theology of John Calvin was given classic expression in his Institutes of the Christian Religion . In this definitive work, Calvin expert Charles Partee offers a careful exposition of Calvin's theology as it appears in the Institutes, paying special attention to the relation of Calvin's theology to the history of Christian thought and to the questions of Calvin's own time. Partee also examines the development of later Calvinism and the adaptation of Calvin's thought by his later followers. As Partee shows, Calvin's theology provides a profound exposition of Christian faith and a magnificent resource for theology today.
