Review quote

"Still the best available single volume on Calvin and Calvinism."-William Loyd Allen, Southern Baptist Theological Seminary "An excellent coverage of Calvinistic thought, its development and its expansion."-Richard Cherok, Cincinnati Bible College and Seminary "A masterful historical portrait of the whole movement of Calvinism."-Union Seminary Quarterly Review "A book that will certainly be the historical reference volume on Calvin in the English language for years to come."-Hugh Thomson Kerr, Jr., The Christian Century "McNeill has given us a very good and much needed volume on Reformed Christianity."-Leonard J. Tinterud, Theology Today "Will surely remain the standard book on Calvinism for many years to come. It deserves wide currency and careful reading."-Albert C. Outler "[McNeill] has done a great service in presenting in one volume not only an account of the life and teaching of Calvin but a survey of Calvinism down to our own day....One of the best short accounts of Calvin available, based on a thorough knowledge both of his life and writings and of modern scholarship."-American Historical Review
