"Calvinism covers its imposingly diverse subject with scholarly precision and the kind of charity and balance one hopes for in any historian. [...] In Calvinism, Mr. Hart skilfully combines political and institutional history, on the one hand, and theological developments and the 'history of ideas,' on the other."-Barton Swaim, Wall Street Journal -- Barton Swaim Wall Street Journal "The great merit of this book is that it pulls so many threads together in a coherent tapestry. The writing is clear and efficient."-James Bratt, Christian Century -- James Bratt Christian Century
