About this product
- DescriptionRandall C. Zachman places Calvin in conversation with theologians such as Pascal, Kierkegaard, Ezra the Scribe, Julian of Norwich and Karl Barth, and attends to themes in Calvin's theology which are often overlooked. Zachman draws out Calvin's use of astromy and great concern to see ourselves in comparison to the immensity of the universe, ackwledging in wonder and awe our thingness before God. Throughout, Zachman presents a Calvin who seeks a route out of self-deception to self-kwledge, though Kierkegaard shows that it is love, and t judgment, that most deeply reveals us to ourselves. The book discusses Calvin's understanding of the election of the Jews and their relationship to God, and further reconsiders Calvin's understanding of judgment and how the call to love our neighbour is undermined by the formation of alliances.
