What People are Saying About This

Andrew Pettegree

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 (Andrew Pettegree is Director, St. Andrews Reformation Studies Institute).
