Reviews - What do customers think about John Calvin--A Biography?

Beautifully Done  Apr 2, 2007
THL Parker has continued to place us all in his debt with his solid, serious, inspirational work on the various aspects of John Calvn's theology. This is one of the better biography's in print on Calvin's life and I would recommend it enthusastically.

Though now roughly thirty years old, it was the first biography written on Calvin's life in quite some time when it was published. Though not as current as Bernard Cottret's recent biography, it seems more in touch with the subject matter than Cottret does.

Cottret, it seems to me, seeks too much "objectivity" in rehearshing the details of Calvin's life--Parker clearly has a fondness for Calvin and the sources with which he is familiar and it shows in this biography.

Parker has an enthusiasm for the material that I find missing in Cottret's otherwise outstanding work. I would recommend everything that Parker has authored as worthy of being read, reflected upon, and used. Particularly this biography of Calvin.
