Christ and the Decree Christ and the Decree

Christology and Predestination in Reformed Theology from Calvin to Perkins

by Muller, Richard A.

In Christ and the Decree, one of the foremost scholars of Calvinism today expounds the doctrines of Christ and predestination as they were developed by Reformed theologians extending from Calvin, Bullinger, Musculus, Vermigli, Beza, Ursinus, and Perkins. The author analyzes the relationship of these two doctrines to each other and to the esoteriological structure of the system. This seminal work on the relationship between Calvin and the Calvinists is once again available with a new contextualizing preface by the author. It offers a succinct introduction to the early development of Calvinism/Reformation thought.

"The book will certainly be effective in answering those who wish to turn Reformed theology into simply a system rationally deduced from the doctrine of predestination, for the author has shown that the doctrine is not the central or controlling factor in the system." --W. Stanford Reid, Sixteenth Century Journal

"It is rare nowadays to read a scholarly analysis of the Reformation and post-Reformation literature which renders a faithful interpretation of the theology of the Reformers. Richard A. Muller's masterful study . . . provides a welcome breath of fresh air. . . . The author has achieved a notable contribution to the study of the doctrine of Christ in decretive theology."--Mark W. Karlberg, Westminster Theological Journal

Paperback, 256 pages, Notes, select bibliography, and index of authors.
