Editorial Reviews

Review

'Dr Gibson's exploration of the complex of issues that arises in the theological intersection of Christology, election and Scripture in Calvin and Barth is deft and clear, and painstaking and fair. The way in which he approaches his task, by fashioning illuminating methodological tools to interrogate the two theologians, is very well done. The result is a fascinating and valuable study.' - Paul Helm, Regents College, Vancouver, Canada
(Paul Helm)

'Debates about the future of Reformed theology often tend to focus on the nature of the legacy of two men in particular: John Calvin and Karl Barth. Much ink has been spilled in examining the theological, social, intellectual, cultural, and even psychological backgrounds of these two men as a means of establishing their respective significance; but, in this work, David Gibson addresses these matters via a close study of their exegesis as a means of establishing just how faithful each was to their own stated scripture principle. Gibson's work represents a constructive and insightful development of contemporary discussion of the nature of Reformed theology.' — Carl R. Trueman, Westminster Theological Seminary, Philadelphia, USA
(Carl R. Trueman)

'For those who deplore the "dumbing down" of so much Christian publishing nowadays, this volume will offer a refreshing change' Churchman, Sept. 2010


'There is much to commend about Gibson's study. He offers the reader a clear, careful and fair reading of Calvin and Barth... He is refreshingly appreciative of the ways in which the connections and motifs internal to Barth's own thought are deeply indebted to the Reform tradition, and particularly to Calvin... this study deserves a wide reading, and will be of particular interest to Calvin and Barth scholars.'
(Jounral of Theological Studies)
