Okay, I am re-reading three books, and for nefarious reasons. I just wanted to mention them to you all, anyone interested in the development of Calvinism should read these books. Two of these books speak to the flowering of Federal Calvinism, while the latter traces the development of Scottish Theology, or what we like to call here: Evangelical Calvinism. Let me mention these books, then:
Christ And The Decree: Christology And Predestination In Reformed Theology From Calvin To Perkins by Richard Muller
German Calvinism in the Confessional Age: The Covenant Theology of Caspar Olevianus by Lyle D. Bierma
Scottish Theology: From John Knox to John McLeod Campbell by Thomas F. Torrance
There you go. Some of these are a bit technical for the layman, but well worth the stretch and the read; that is if you are interested in being a person of the “truth.” 😉
Also, I would like to get any feedback on other books or essays that any of you think I should read relative to the history and development of Calvinism — whether that be English, Scottish, Dutch, or even ‘American’.
