Calvin's companion Nov 4, 2006
A well-written, very accessible survey of Calvin's life, thought and theology, this book is a must for individuals interested in cutting through the myths and the misinformation and getting to know this complex and brilliant Reformation prophet, priest, pastor and theologian. The Cambridge Companion prompted me to go back and re-read sections of Calvin's "Institutes" armed with new insights garnered from this excellent compendium. I highly recommend "The Cambridge Companion to John Calvin" and I know that I will go back to it again and again for study, preaching and just plain enjoyment.
