Many would argue that a true understanding of contemporary Christian thought is impossible without a basic understanding of Calvin's contributions. 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.

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.
