Review: The River of Grace: The Story of John Calvin
The River of Grace: The Story of John Calvin by Joyce McPherson
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
This is the best children's biography of John Calvin I've read, and it was in my local public library!
It gives equal attention to each stage of Calvin's life, maybe emphasizing his early life in Catholicism and coming to Protestant views in university. The "underground" nature of Protestantism was described well, and Calvin's natural and conservative hesitancy to enter it, against Mother Church.
There is little attention given to Calvin's doctrines, and more about his pastoral labors, which was refreshing.
