About the Author
John Piper (DTheol, University of Munich) is the founder and teacher of desiringGod.org and the chancellor of Bethlehem College & Seminary. He served for 33 years as the senior pastor of Bethlehem Baptist Church in Minneapolis, Minnesota, and is the author of more than 50 books, including Desiring God, Don’t Waste Your Life, This Momentary Marriage, Bloodlines, and Does God Desire All to Be Saved?
John Calvin holds an amazing place in history--he was born at the perfect time to move the Reformation forward. Indeed, it is his theology that is at the core of Protestant thinking, more so even than Martin Luther's. In this short book, renowned theologian John Piper unfolds the underlying thought behind Calvin's magnum opus, THE INSTITUTES OF THE CHRISTIAN RELIGION. Michael Koontz narrates with a much more youthful voice than Piper's, thus shifting the project from what might have been a more emphatic reading. Koontz's delivery style works to good effect as this is a much more clinical treatise than Piper's usual offerings. Koontz carries off Piper's intended tone expertly, creating a satisfying experience. S.M.M. © AudioFile 2009, Portland, Maine --This text refers to the Audio CD edition.

This work is more like an extended introductory biography one might find preceding an Oxford Classics edition of a text, for instance. Therefore, if you know you are going to read a biography of Calvin, I would just skip this one. For those non-religious readers, the first chapter is devoted to a Calvin-minded evangelism, and not having much to do with Calvin himself, so it may be worth skipping. Based on all of the above, I highly recommend grabbing this book from the library. I am not sure who would really value owning a copy, unless a group of people intend to share it or put it in a Church library or something.
