Calvin's Theology as Pastoral Theology

Main Article Content

Takeshi Takasaki


Calvin's theology is pastoral. I learned about Calvin's theology, the Reformed tradition, ecclesiastical Latin, modem theology (particularly Barth and Brunner), and the evangelical spirit from Dr. I. John Hesselink at Tokyo Union Theological Seminary (1962-64, 1970-73), and at Western Theological Seminary (1974-76, 1987-88). A missionary to Japan for twenty years, Dr. Hesselink is still active and influential in Japan through his books and articles as well as his visiting for preaching and teaching.
