Penning shows the Life of Calvin against the turbulence, religious unrest, and intellectual ferment of the times, when Europe stormed with Reformation and Counter Reformation, and traces the incredible full life and work of the man who was not only the greatest of the of the sixteenth century Reformers, but who was the greatest man of his age. Here we see too, the man Calvin: a man of infinite tenderness as well as of great temper; one who despised money for himself, but who thought it very important when counseling a friend entertaining thoughts of marriage.
