John Calvin: After Darkness Light (Catherine Mackenzie)

$8.99 $7.25

Calvin had ideas on how we could live better lives, particularly how we could live in close harmony with God and each other, but because his ideas were radical, his life was filled with dramatic events and dangers. He was run out of town – and then welcomed back.

John was accused by many of being too harsh, and by others of being too tenderhearted. When he explained what the Bible meant, he was considered too logical and too spiritual! He must have been an amazing man to have caused such a stir!

This new biography in the Trailblazers series will help children 8-12 understand more about the life of this great French Reformer.
