Calvin's Theology of the Psalms
Selderhuis, Herman J.

Grand Rapids: Baker, 2007 pp. 304. $29.99

Series Information
Texts and Studies in Reformation and Post-Reformation Thought

Description: In this intriguing book, Herman Selderhuis argues that John Calvin's biblical interpretation of the Psalms is fundamentally shaped by his doctrine of God. Selderhuis minimizes references to other Calvin studies and other works by Calvin, thus allowing Calvin's theology on the Psalms to speak for itself. The book is organized thematically according to divine attributes. Reformation and Calvin scholars as well as interested Reformed readers will value this resource.

Subjects: Bible, Hebrew Bible/Old Testament, Writings, Literature, Methods, Theological Approaches, Biblical Theology, Hebrew Bible/Old Testament Theology, Psalms
