Summary:
Calvin at the Centre explores the consequences of various ideas in the thought of John Calvin, and the influence of his ideas on later theologians. The book sets to one side the assumption that Calvin's views are purely biblical and unaffected by the particular intellectual circumstances in which he lived. The emphasis is on philosophical ideas within Calvin's theology, and the chapters are organised to reflect this, dealing in turn with epistemological, metaphysical, andethical issues. Paul Helm highlights some of the complexities in the relation between Calvin and Calvinism. Like the author'
