John Calvin: Sovereign Hope

Front Cover
InterVarsity Press, May 1, 2002 - Religion - 80 pages
He was loved. He was hated. But he was never ignored. John Calvin was accused of being harsh, petty and cold. Yet his writings reflect a deep passion for God. His letters show loving concern for his friends. And it's hard to overestimate his influence on Protestant Christianity. Do you believe that salvation comes by faith alone, based on Scripture alone, through the grace of Jesus Christ alone? Then you hold to Calvin's essential teachings. John Calvin's theology put God first. He believed that nothing happens without the "hidden will" of God. This was the basis of his hope. As you work through Carolyn Nystrom's Christian Classics Bible Study based on Calvin's thought and teaching, you'll have the opportunity to grapple with Scripture and discover the shape of Calvin's unshakable hope in God for yourself.
