Waldron, Samuel E.
For several yeas Calvin felt constrained to write a tract about the vexations and stumbling blocks which certain men of the Reformed Church were obliged to endure because of their faith. When those things were referred to the Reformer or reported to him by men fleeing to Geneva, they moved him deeply and promoted him not only to give them specific instruction but also to help and encourage them.
Author John Calvin is a 16th Century Reformer. He is best known for The Institutes of Christian Religion.
