John Calvin: A Heart for Devotion, Doctrine, and Doxology

In the evangelical world there are many false or at least distorted ideas about John Calvin. The reality is that this great reformer was much more than the austere theologian many make him out to be.

This being the 500th anniversary of Calvin's birth, Reformation Trust has published an excellent book about the Calvin's life - John Calvin: A Heart for Devotion, Doctrine, and Doxology. The book is segmented into 19 chapters written by 19 current theologians. The authors include Thabiti Anyabwile, Jerry Bridges, Sinclair Ferguson, and John MacArthur.

This book is well worth the read because it offers a balanced look at the entire life of John Calvin. He is shown to be the man he was - a pastor at heart with a love for Christ and His church. I highly recommend this book.
