Abstract

Comment devons-nous agir personnellement et en société ? A cette question, que Calvin place au coeur de son projet réformateur, ce livre apporte un regard nouveau, mettant en perspective trois manières d'entendre le commandement de Dieu, selon qu'il s'adresse à tout humain, au chrétien et au saint en devenir. Ainsi se trouve restituée dans sa dimension théologique une éthique qui a profondément marqué nos sociétés contemporaines, tant du point de vue des moeurs que pour le politique et l'économie. Avec ses parts d'ombre et de lumière, Calvin apparaît ainsi comme l'une des grandes figures de la Modernité.

Abstract

In Calvin's Political Theology and the Public Engagement of the Church, Matthew J. Tuininga explores a little appreciated dimension of John Calvin's political thought, his two kingdoms theology, as a model for constructive Christian participation in liberal society. Widely misunderstood as a proto-political culture warrior, due in part to his often misinterpreted role in controversies over predestination and the heretic Servetus, Calvin articulated a thoughtful approach to public life rooted in his understanding of the gospel and its teaching concerning the kingdom of God. He staked his ministry in Geneva on his commitment to keeping the church distinct from the state, abandoning simplistic approaches that placed one above the other, while rejecting the temptations of sectarianism or separatism. This revealing analysis of Calvin's vision offers timely guidance for Christians seeking a mode of faithful, respectful public engagement in democratic, pluralistic communities today.
