Description

The book argues for seeing Calvinian influence as the most significant influence for the Scottish reform movement of 1560. It examines John Calvin's understanding of discipline and interpretations of it by the wider continental Calvinian family, particularly John a Lasco, Valerand Poullain and the French Reformed Church, and their connections and influences on the Scottish Reformation. This study explores the influence of continental Calvinian thought upon the Scottish Reformation of 1560 as found in one of the most significant documents of Scottish reform, "The First Book of Discipline". In his concluding remarks, the author takes this historical study into contemporary reflections which will be of interest to Reformed theologians and church historians today. Though aimed at Calvin and Reformation scholars, it will certainly also interest systematic theologians.
