Product Description

Many would argue that a true understanding of contemporary Christian thought is impossible without a basic understanding of John Calvin's contributions. Now, just in time for the 500th anniversary of Calvin's birth, William Stacy Johnson, a leading theologian, offers this clear and fundamental study of Calvin's insights as a primer for those with little or no knowledge of his work.

Calvin is more than just a figure from history. His life and work-both infused with his passion for the reform of the church-had a continuing impact through the centuries, not only on the church but on society in general. Enhanced with questions for discussion and a handy glossary, this volume is sure to be an invaluable resource for those who seek an accessible way into a deeper understanding of Calvin's role in the development of today's Christian faith.

William Stacy Johnson, a leading Presbyterian theologian, offers this clear and fundamental study of Calvin's insights as a primer for those with little or no knowledge of his work. This volume, enhanced with questions for discussion and a handy glossary, is sure to be an invaluable resource for those who seek an accessible way into a deeper understanding of Calvin's impact on the development of Christian faith and on society.

Endorsements

“In this lively portrayal of the reformer, Johnson shows how the distinctive emphases of Calvin’s thought nurture a dynamic and self-critical theology. We best show our debt to Calvin, not by simply repeating his words, but by emulating his dependence on God’s Word and Spirit in discerning what Christian faithfulness requires today.” — Amy Planting Pauw, Professor of Doctrinal Theology, Louisville Presbyterian Theological Seminary

    This review was written for John Calvin: Reformer for the 21st Century.
    I wanted the book to explain its title of Calvin being a reformer for the 21st Century. He explained Calvin, but didn't find anything new or fresh in its presentation or its content. Calvin was not reintroduced as a 21st Century figure, but a reformer of the 16th Century. I recommend the book for someone just introduced to Calvin's life and basic beliefs.
