David C. Steinmetz, Calvin in Context , 2 nd edition (Oxford: Oxford University Press, 2010) xvii + 307 pp. $29.95. ISBN 978-0-19-973638-6 (pbk). With this book David Steinmetz has further added to his extensive repertoire of useful, workmanlike, yet elegant resources for the study of Reformation thought. Calvin in Context is the second edition of a title first published in 1995. Steinmetz has added five more studies to the original selection and has revised everything. It stands alongside his companion volume Luther in Context , first published in 1986 and revised and expanded in 2002. The writing style is lapidary, clear and attractive, with moments of subdued humour. The ‘context’ in question is not primarily historical events, but traditions of theology and biblical exegesis in the patristic, medieval and early modern eras, both Protestant and Roman Catholic, on which Calvin drew, with which he interacted and which helped to shape his thought. The range of primary texts that Steinmetz engages with, mainly in Latin, but a few in English or German, is awesome.
