Calvin and the History of the Calvinism Collection (31 Vols.) assembles some of the most important secondary literature published in the area of Reformation history and theology and the history of Calvinist thought in faith and culture. The expositional skill and theological organization of John Calvin led to a transforming movement beginning with the transformation of the individual and enveloping the role of a society. With these volumes you will be able to step into history and follow the birth of Calvin’s thought to the formation of Geneva, study the trial and execution of Michael Servetus, trace the growth and expansion of Calvinism from Geneva through Europe and into the Americas, and survey Calvinism as a theological system.

Included in this collection are a number of essays commemorating the 400th birthday of John Calvin. These essays were delivered to the general assembly of the Presbyterian Church and to Union Theological Seminary and address the staying power of Calvin’s thought and the theological fortitude of the system birthed from his life and work. The addresses are vital to understanding the role of Calvinism—particularly American Calvinism—throughout the nineteenth century and the perception of Calvinism at the dawn of the twentieth century.

The volumes in this collection will be welcomed companions for academics, pastors, students, and anyone interested in Calvinism as a formative movement in history. What’s more, with the Logos edition of these classic works you have easy access to your preferred Scripture versions and other pertinent books and articles on Calvin and Calvinism. All Scripture references display the verse on mouse over, and each reference is linked to the original language texts of the Bible and the English translations in your digital library.
