An exposition of Calvin's distinction between God as he is in himself and as he is toward us is offered. His view is compared to that of Aquinas and is found to be very similar. The importance of the distinction for Calvin's anti-speculative approach to theology is demonstrated.

Keywords:   Aquinas, God, God in himself, God towards us, speculation
