Luther and Calvin on Secular Authority (New)

(Paperback - 1991)
$23.99 - Online Price


Martin Luther and John Calvin were the principal magistral reformers of the 16th century: they sought to enlist the co-operation of rulers in the work of reforming the Church. However, neither regarded the relationship between Reformed Christians and the Secular authorities as comfortable or unproblematic. They were torn between the overriding imperative of uncompromising obedience to the will of God as revealed in Scripture, and their sense of the urgent need to maintain order and authority in Church and polity.
