The first biography of John Calvin since 1975 and the only life of the great reformer to analyse his impact on subsequent generations of theologians, politicians, economists and philosophers. This biography is theologically unbiased and is written as much for historians and general readers as for those interested in Calvin the Church reformer.

From the Back Cover:

History occasionally produces figures whose influence on their ownand successive generations is immense. Marx, Freud and Lenin hadsuch an influence, and so, Alister McGrath argues, does JohnCalvin. This book provides a fresh and lucid exploration ofCalvin's life and influence, his theology and his politicalthought, and his determining of the course of European history. Ittraces Calvin's remarkable impact on the development of modernWestern attitudes to work, wealth, civil rights, capitalism and thenatural sciences.

Published to wide critical acclaim in hardback and now availablein paperback, this ground-breaking study of Calvin will be welcomedby all concerned with an understanding of the shaping of modernwestern culture.
