Item Description...
Overview
July 10, 2009, marks the 500th anniversary of the birth of John Calvin. Over time, this Genevan's life and labors shook the West and blazed a trail for liberty around the globe, making him arguably the most important man of the last millennium. Calvin's worldview spurred Huguenot freedom-fighters to resist tyranny in France; fueled evangelistic efforts to pagan tribes; and, with Knox's aid, rekindled freedom's fire among the sturdy Scots. Moreover, his influence compelled a hardy group of Pilgrims to settle at Plymouth Rock and later drove a rag-tag band of patriots to fight for American independence. Great as a family read-aloud, this volume brings to life the pivotal moments of Calvin's life, including his sudden conversion to Christ; his unforgettable call to Geneva by William Farel; his ongoing struggle with the Libertines; and his marriage and love for his wife, Idelette. It illustrates the key elements of his theology; explains the important roles that he played as theologian, pastor, educator, and statesman; and examines the transformational impact that he had in such countries as Holland, America, and the British Isles.

Publishers Description
July 10, 2009, marks the 500th anniversary of the birth of John Calvin. During his own time and in the centuries that followed, this Genevan's life and labors shook the West and blazed a trail for liberty around the globe, making him arguably the most important man of the last millennium. Calvin's worldview spurred Huguenot freedom-fighters to resist tyranny in France, fueled evangelistic efforts to pagan tribes, and, with John Knox's aid, rekindled freedom's fire among the sturdy Scots. Moreover, Calvin's influence compelled a hardy group of Pilgrims to settle at Plymouth Rock, and later drove a rag-tag band of patriots to fight for American independence.

Perfect for a family read-aloud, John Calvin: Man of the Millennium reveals this great man of God to a new generation of Christians in need of its own reformation.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Excellent and readable biography  Dec 20, 2008
It was refreshing to read a treatment of Calvin's life that arises from a sympathetic author. In spite of his massive influence, Calvin is so hated by contemporary scholarship that any treatment of him in the current scene is bound to be marked by skepticism that tends to dismiss his amazing achievements. Vollmer's book, written 100 years ago and updated for this edition, is easy to read and aims to deal with the broad outlines of Calvin's life and to survey his abiding influence in many areas of Western culture and civilization. The thesis that Calvin's ideas of individual liberty lie at the foundation of the democratic republic that is the United States of America is worthy of consideration at a time when there is such a dramatic shift toward the collectivism that has marked so many of the failed regimes in European history. The time spent in reading this book will leave the reader agreeing with the idea that Calvin was easily the most influential man of the second millennium of the Christian era.
