From one of the biggest names in John Calvin scholarship come the documented proceedings of the latest meeting of the International Congress on Calvin Research, held in August 1990 in Grand Rapids, Michigan.
Calvinus Sacrae Scripturae Professor collects the paper presentations and seminar reports by the following prominent international Calvin scholars: Heiko A. Oberman, James A. DeJong, James B. Torrance, Wilhelm H. Neuser, Paul E. Rorem, Richard C. Gamble, Richard Hörcsik, Cornelis Augustijn, Luke Anderson, Erik A. de Boer, I. John Hesselink, Francis M. Higman, Nobuo Watanabe, Irena Backus, Adrianus D. Pont, Mitsuru Shimura, Jeffrey R. Watt, and Kwang-Woong Yu. While some of the essays remain in German and French, most are in English.
Ranging from essays on Calvin's spirituality to his life in Geneva and Strasbourg, this volume is a sourcebook of the brightest scholarship in Calvin studies, covering many of the most significant areas of current inquiry and introducing those of the future.
Wilhelm H. Nueser, professor emeritus of church history at Munster University, Faculty of Theology, Germany, is secretary of the International Congress on Calvin Research. He has written widely on John Calvin and the Reformation.
