Item Description...
Overview
Greater than any other Reformation era figure, John Calvin stimulated the debate, thoughts and ideas that have come to dominate Western culture and society. Dedicated to the reform of the church, and insistent on a literalistic reading of scripture, his influence radically changed the face of Protestantism and Society. Society's abhorrence of corruption in government, and the correspondent lack of it in Western Democracies, is largely down to his work. He was the first major political thinker to model social organization on Biblical principles, one of his most important innovations being the incorporation of the church into city government. As a result, Geneva became the most important Protestant centre of Europe in the 16th Century. Calvin's transformation of the political, social, philosophical and cultural landscape of Europe permeates the doctrine of Presbyterian, and other Reformed churches worldwide, to this day. Williston Walker produced this benchmark biography in 1906: it is still the best. Gripping, enlightening and authoritative - you will learn of a man whose theological stance and political philosophy has done much to shape modern Western culture and continues to influence millions of people in the 21st century.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Just Right  Nov 25, 2007
I could not disagree with the first reviewer of this book more. Walker's style of writing is smooth and clear. The book presents Calvin's life in a well-rounded fashion that steers clear of partianship. I especially appreciated Walker's treatment of the Servetus incident. Walker does not exonerate Calvin as he goes step-by-step though the incidnet, but he shows that Calvin was careful and consistent with the beliefs and practices of his own time when he dealt with the heretic.

Calvin's titanic struggles in Geneva are presented in a "both sides" basis. His ejection from Geneva and his eventual return are carefully documented. This is a first class biography that should be on the shelves of Calvin's friends and enemies.
 
Too Dry  Jun 15, 2006
I am three quarters through the book and it will be a learning chore to finish it. It you want bare dry uninteresting facts this book is for you but if you want a more interesting read on Calvin get something else.
