"This theological and sociological study will also be of interest to those concerned with inculturation, communications media and political development."--Worship
"In a masterpiece of concise exposition, Elwood demonstrates how Calvin's fundamental re-ordering of the sacraments was elaborated and expanded by a tight circle of friends and followers whose writings quickly became normative for French evangelism. Closely written and based on a wide-ranging survey of contemporary literature, this work is likely to become the definitive study of a subject of central importance in understanding why evangelical reform in France could not be accomplished without striking at the heart of the established system of belief."--Andrew Pettegree, Director, St. Andrews Reformation Studies Institute.
