Calvin and the Reformed Tradition

Calvin and the Reformed Tradition

On the Work of Christ and the Order of Salvation.
Richard Muller, a world-class scholar of the Reformation era, examines the
relationship of Calvin's theology to the Reformed tradition, indicating
Calvin's place in the tradition as one of several significant second-generation
formulators. Muller argues that the Reformed tradition is a diverse and
variegated movement not suitably described either as founded solely on the
thought of John Calvin or as a reaction to or deviation from Calvin, thereby
setting aside the old Calvin and the Calvinists" approach in favor of a more " integral and representative perspective. Muller offers historical corrective
and nuance on topics of current interest in Reformed theology, such as limited
atonement/universalism, union with Christ, and the order of salvation.
This is a masterful and penetrating look into critical dimensions of " Calvin's soteriology in relation to the Reformed tradition. Richard Muller
presents here the fruit of decades of careful research into sixteenth- and
seventeenth-century sources. Sometimes he gives us a satellite view of
conflicting master narratives in retelling Reformation and post-Reformation
theology. At other times he gives us a microscopic view of specific texts in
Calvin's works, carefully analyzed in their context. At every turn he calls
scholars to careful definition of terms and the avoidance of imposing
anachronisms on early modern writers. Students of historical theology with an
interest in matters such as the divine intent of Christ's death, the free offer
of the gospel, the will of God for salvation, union with Christ, and the
relation of assurance of salvation to the fruit of the Spirit will find this
book challenging, illuminating, and helpful. - Joel R. Beeke"
