In Calvin's Company of Pastors, Scott Manetsch examines the pastoral theology and practical ministry activities of Geneva's reformed ministers from the time of Calvin's arrival in Geneva until the beginning of the seventeenth century. During these seven decades, more than 130 men were enrolledin Geneva's Venerable Company of Pastors (as it was called), including notable reformed leaders such as Pierre Viret, Theodore Beza, Simon Goulart, Lambert Daneau, and Jean Diodati. Aside from these better-known epigones, Geneva's pastors from this period remain hidden from view, cloaked in Calvin'slong shadow, even though they played a strategic role in preserving and reshaping Calvin's pastoral legacy.Making extensive use of archival materials, published sermons, catechisms, prayer books, personal correspondence, and theological writings, Manetsch offers an engaging and vivid portrait of pastoral life in sixteenth- and early seventeenth-century Geneva, exploring the manner in which Geneva'sministers conceived of their pastoral office and performed their daily responsibilities of preaching, public worship, moral discipline, catechesis, administering the sacraments, and pastoral care. Manetsch demonstrates that Calvin and his colleagues were much more than ivory tower theologians or"quasi-agents of the state," concerned primarily with dispensing theological information to their congregations or enforcing magisterial authority. Rather, they saw themselves as spiritual shepherds of Christ's Church, and this self-understanding shaped to a significant degree their daily work aspastors and preachers.… (mer)

Beautiful, sensitive, and thorough historical work. Each chapter could easily have been a book unto itself. ( )

All with even a passing interest in history know of John Calvin as one of the leading figures of the Reformation. His played a role in building the Reformed church in Geneva which led to the spreading of the Reformation throughout Europe and eventually across the globe.
The details of how this occur, especially through building and developing a group of pastors is less known. This book takes the reader through many of these details. Matters like church organisation, the tension that there was between the magistrates and the church, training of pastors, pastoral work, church discipline, preaching and church services, the administration of the sacraments, and even matters like finance are all covered. The author also deals how leaders following Calvin dealt with what he and his peers left behind: should things stay the same, or can they change? The authors is also emphatic is dealing with criticism of Calvin as a tyrant. He clearer was not so, and whilst given a place a honour and leadership, he always wanted the church leadership to be group working harmoniously together. The civil government were insistent on having one man in charge in the church (as individual they could deal with directly); Calvin and his peers and successors strongly resisted that.
This is a wonderful book. A little overwhelming in a few places, a bit technical in one section on doctrine, funny in other places, but overall very instructive. I enjoyed reading it. ( )
