A comprehensive history of the Calvinist movement.

"A book that will certainly be the historical reference volume on Calvin in the English language for years to come."--Hugh Thomson Kerr, Jr., The Christian Century
"A masterful historical portrait of the whole movement of Calvinism."--Union Seminary Quarterly Review
"An excellent coverage of Calvinistic thought, its development and its expansion."--Richard Cherok, Cincinnati Bible College and Seminary
