For a religious tradition that has been both lionised and despised, Hart provides a nuanced sense of internal developments, internal differences, and (more recently) worldwide expansion. His ability to document the surprising adaptability of Calvinism – alongside the steady focus of Calvinists on divine sovereignty, salvation in Christ, and the transformation of creation – is the most striking of the book’s many virtues.” —Mark Noll
