Pierre-Charles Marcel (1910–1992)[1] was a leading Protestant Christian pastor and philosopher who studied under France's leading evangelical-confessional mind, M. Auguste Lecerf (1873–1943). Marcel was sent to the Netherlands by Lecerf to study under Herman Dooyeweerd.

Pierre-Charles Marcel also became the president of la Société Calviniste de France and was active in the International Association for Reformed Faith and Action (IARFA). He was a pastor in l'Église réformée de France. Two "Treatises" on early works of Herman Dooyeweerd (1894–1977) by Pierre-Charles Marcel, translated from the original unpublished French typescripts circa 1956, will appear for the first time as printed books in the French language, while translations of the French into English are planned for publication over the next two or three years. Colin Wright is the translator and redactor of the two forthcoming English editions.
