Children of God
The Imago Dei in John Calvin and His Context
1. Edition 2009
Vandenhoeck & Ruprecht
Reformed Historical Theology -
John Calvin had a keen interest in what the Scriptures teach about the nature and faculties, as well as the role and responsibilities, of human beings. For him, the proper way were created: in the image and likeness of God.
Jason Van Vliet examines Calvins´s explanation of the imago Dei within the times and ecclesiastical circumstances in which he lived. He aims at giving a satisfactory answer to the question of whether Calvins´s teaching on the imago Dei can be considered one of the stronger or weaker points of his reformatory work.
