Product Description

Few Christian Leaders have suffered quite so much misunderstanding as John Calvin. He has often been dismissed as a theologian without humanity. In fact the very reverse is much nearer the truth. He was a man of deep and lasting affection, passionately concerned for the cause of Christ in the world; a man who burned himself out for the gospel; a man whose heart belonged to Christ.

In this book the reader will find a straightforward introduction to the life and work of the great Reformer of Geneva. W J. Grier's fast-moving biography not only depicts the titanic struggle by which the gospel was established in Geneva, but also provides valuable insights into the work of God that we know as 'the Reformation'. In Calvin's own words, 'God's loving-kindness to us was wonderful, when the pure gospel emerged out of that dreadful darkness in which it had been buried for so many years.'

For Calvin, the Reformation was primarily a movement of the Holy Spirit that turned attention from man-centered religion to God. It is the prayer of the publishers that the retelling of this 'wonderful' story will help in the recovery of God-centered Christianity and the raising up of more 'burning and shining lights' today.
