Full Product Description
Calvin had ideas on how we could live better lives - particularly how we could live in close harmony with God and each other - but because his ideas were radical, his life was filled with dramatic events and dangers. He was run out of town - and then welcomed back. He was accused of being too harsh - and also too tender hearted. When he explained what the bible meant he was considered too logical and too spiritual!
He must have been an amazing man to have caused such a stir!

John Calvin: After Darkness LightPaula Hill, via The Good Book Stall
Not much is known about the early life of John Calvin, but Catherine Mackenzie has done her research well and has used it to tell the story of the great reformer’s childhood, conversion and subsequent life. She manages to weave in plenty of his own words and in this way also provides a simple introduction to the doctrines of grace, which were fundamental to Calvin’s beliefs and practice. The story also contains plenty of excitement and should engage young readers, so it would provide an excellent introduction to reformed doctrine, which is also summarised at the back of the book using the TULIP acronym. Finally, a series of questions helps the reader to reflect on incidents in Calvin’s life. A good book for a thoughtful reader, which could be given to an adult who wants to find out about what some refer to as “Calvinism”.
