Description:

Our Sovereign Refuge is a study of the pastoral theology of Theodore Beza, the Protestant reformer who inherited the mantle of leadership in the Reformed church from John Calvin. Countering a common view of Beza as supremely a ?scholastic? theologian who deviated from Calvin's biblical focus, Wright uncovers a new portrait of Theodore Beza. Beza was not a cold and rigid academic theologian obsessed with probing the eternal decrees of God. Rather, by placing Beza in his pastoral context and by noting his concerns in his pastoral and biblical treatises, Wright shows that Beza was fundamentally a committed Christian who was troubled by the vicissitudes of life in the second half of the sixteenth century. Beza believed that the biblical truth of the supreme sovereignty of God alone could support Christians on their earthly pilgrimage to heaven. This pastoral and personal portrait of Beza forms the heart of Wright's argument. Bookseller Inventory #

Synopsis: This study of Beza's pastoral theology, based on a thorough examination of his writings, uncovers a new portrait of the third generation reformer. The picture that emerges is not of a cold, removed, overly-intellectual academic, but a committed Christian troubled by the vicissitudes of life. He believed that only the biblical truth of the supreme sovereignty of God could support believers on their earthly pilgrimage to heaven.
