"This stunning book is now rightly acknowledged as the most original contribution to Calvin scholarship in thirty years. Drawing on archives and sources scarcely considered in much of the established literature, it paints a picture of the great reformer that is both subtle and challenging. This book offers by far the most convincing explanation of why Calvin was such a contentious figure in Geneva, as well as why he ultimately triumphed."
