Overview

The concept of creation as God's arena of order and action links themes to which John Calvin returns again and again in his works.

"In Calvin's understanding, sin neither annihilated the natural realm nor thwarted God's purpose in creation. Divine immutability guarantees that the original purpose of creation is irrevocable," Susan Schreiner writes. She investigates the Augustinian, medieval, and Reformation context of Calvin's thinking, as well as the opposing views that forged his polemic approach.

The Theater of His Glory is a fresh, well-communicated contribution to historical theology and Calvinist studies. Labyrinth Press published the cloth edition of The Theater of His Glory in 1991 as part of its Studies in Historical Theology series.
