Faithful Ethics According to John Calvin. The Teachability of the Heart
1997 0-7734-8521-X
This volume argues that neither theoretical nor confessional approaches to the relationship of faith and ethics can adequately address the issues involved. It draws on conceptual tools from the work of Bernard Lonergan to show that attention needs to shift from content to method. Using the work of John Calvin, it shows that faith shaped ethics. The volume contains an annotated translation and extended commentary of Calvin's Letter to Sachinus on Lending at Interest. This text is generally recognized by economic historians as an important one for understanding the development of early modern capitalism.
