6 of 6 people found the following review helpful By Quentin D. Stewart on February 4, 2009
Format: Paperback
I had read significant portions of Calvin's Institutes before I encountered Wendel but I still found his analysis of Calvin extremely helpful. Wendel is fair and sympathetic to Calvin, but not afraid to point out some of the idiosyncracies in his thought. Thus Calvin is described as being "Christocentric" in orientation, but Wendel concedes that Calvin's christology takes on unusual hues as the Genevan grapples with the nature of the physicality of the resurrected Christ.

Personally I can not praise this book to highly.If you study Calvin for forty years you would come to the same conclusions. This book will save you a lot of time.
