VORSTER, Nico. 'And behold a ladder': Descent and ascent in Calvin's soteriology. In Skriflig (Online) [online]. 2015, vol.49, n.1, pp. 1-8. ISSN 1018-6441.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4102/ids.v49i1.2022.

This article investigates Calvin's use of the schema of descent and ascent to construct his soteriology. The main argument offered is that Calvin utilises the notion of descent-ascent as a tool to weave together juridical and mystical categories in his soteriology. The descent-ascent scheme enables him to construct a theocentric soteriology that is personal and dynamic in nature, whilst concrete in ethical application. It also endows his soteriology with a strong pneumatological and eschatological orientation.
