"Eerdmans' third edition of Dowey's The Knowledge of God in Calvin's Theology is both a welcomed and noteworthy publishing event, welcomed because its publication makes available for a new generation Dowey's substantive analysis of Calvin's thought and noteworthy because its author's breadth of scholarship, then and now, endows the work, with its expanded appendices, with a lively, /5(8).

The options are many and rich, and Calvin stands poised before all of them when he opens his book with an account of the twofold knowledge of God and self. When Calvin actually goes on to say in Institutes Book I chapter 1, however, shows that he has something very definite in mind.
