Book Review - John Calvin
I finished the book John Calvin: A Heart for Devotion, Doctrine & Doxology (Reformation Trust, 2008) edited by Burk Parsons. Contributors run the gamut from senior writers like Jay Adams and John MacArthur to juniors like Thabiti Anyabwile. This is a feast for Calvinists and non-Calvinists alike because is presents a human Calvin, not an ivory tower academic or 'frozen chosen' theologian. The twenty articles (including Ian Murray's forward) cover topics like Calvin's humility, preaching, counseling and prayer life. You can purchase the book by clicking on the Westminster bookstore link and help support my book habit!
