Publisher's Description

<p>John Calvin saw this world as God&’s theater where his glory is always on display. Just as &"day and night pour forth speech,&" the universe and history are not silent either; they tell the glory of God. Reflecting on over 500 years of Calvin&’s legacy, John Piper and this book&’s other contributors invite us to join Calvin in the theater of God.</p> <p>Stemming from the Desiring God 2009 National Conference, this volume includes chapters by Julius Kim, Douglas Wilson, Marvin Olasky, Mark Talbot, Sam Storms, and John Piper. It touches on topics such as Calvin&’s life, the Christian meaning of public life, sin and suffering, the joy of the last resurrection, and Jesus Christ as the d&eacute;nouement of God&’s story.</p> <p>Editors John Piper and David Mathis, along with the contributors, make John Calvin&’s Christ-exalting perspective on the glory of God accessible to today&’s readers. Both Calvinists and other evangelicals interested in the life and work of Calvin will find these essays refreshing and instructive, leading to a robust understanding of the world as the theater of God.</p>
