Full Product Description
Calvin: A Guide for the Perplexed attempts to position Calvin in a more objective light so that his works can be judged from a purely theological perspective. Paul Helm provides a 'middle level' introduction to his thought. The book also looks at Helm's philosophy within his theology, which has often been admired and even overlooked amongst some circles.
Chapters of the book:
1 Orientation - who was Calvin - Calvin and 'Calvinism' - idolising and demonising - recent scholarhip - anachronism - philosophy.
2. Knowledge of God and self - "Sensus Divinitatis" - Revelation - 'Reformed' epistemology
3. God in Trinity
4. Jesus Christ, his person and his work
5. Grace and faith - the will - predestination - faith and assurance - justification and sanctification (two-fold righteousness)
6. Ethics - natural law/common grace - the revealed law and its 'uses' - what is valuable - intention
7. Church and State - word and sacrament - Two Kingdoms - magistrate - resistance
8. Calvin and Calvinism - Kendall - Puritanism - Scholasticism - Warfield
