Gordon looks at Calvin's character, his maturing vision of God and humanity, his personal tragedies and failures, his extensive relationships with others, and the context within which he wrote and taught. --from publisher description… (mere)

This book is not an easy read. However, in the end, it is a rewarding read. This book is hard to start out, as there is little recorded about Calvin's early life, and the author is interested in really setting the stage in which Calvin grows up. A confusingly large number of names becomes easier to manage as you progress through the book and see certain people come to the front of Calvin's life and the time period. The book is not entirely in an entirely chronological format; instead, in a generally chronologically manner, with a good bit of overlap, the author tackles major events in Calvin's life, many of which took place over many years. This is a great book for learning about both Calvin, and about the Reformation during his lifetime. One of the more interesting things that really came through a lot was the struggle & cooperation between church & state at a time when the two governments were largely held to be in many ways one. It provided some food for thought: considering what the good points of a system like that are, and what are the bad points. In the end, it does seem that the bad out-weighs the good, as even I, as a Reformed (Calvinist) Baptist, would be considered a heretic by Calvin because I'm not a pado-baptist. ( )

Despite its few shortcomings, this book's attention to the events of Calvin's life, his intellectual development, his close associations (particularly Farel, Viret, and Bucer), the culture of the time, the role of France (and the French in Geneva), the inter-workings of Genevan society, and Calvin's impact on the broader European Reformation are expounded with excellence. Also, Gordon's command of primary sources is impressive. Additionally, no attempt is made to whitewash the faults of Calvin, which is helpful in understanding historical situations such as Calvin's expulsion from Geneva in 1538 and the discussion of his temperament.
