Product Description

About the Author

About the Author:

"John Calvin was born "John Cauvin" on July 10, 1509 at Noyon in France. His father, Gerard Cauvin was a church leader holding ecclesiastical offices for the lordship of Noyon. Calvin's mother was Jeanne le Franc, the daughter of an innkeeper at Cambrai, who afterwards came to reside at Noyon. Gerard Cauvin was esteemed as a man of considerable wisdom and prudence, and his wife was said to be that rare combination of both a godly and attractive lady. She bore him five sons, of whom John was the second. John Calvin lived to the age of 55, dying on May 27, 1564.

John Calvin's father destined him from the start for an ecclesiastical career, and paid for his education in the household of the noble family of Hangest de Montmor. In May 1521 he was appointed to a chaplaincy in the cathedral of Noyon. The plague having visited Noyon, the young Hangests were sent to Paris in August 1523, and Calvin accompanied them. He lived with his uncle and attended as an out-student the College de la Marche. From the College de la Marche he moved to the College de Montaigu, where the atmosphere was more ecclesiastical and where he had for instructor a Spaniard who is described as a man of learning and to whom Calvin was indebted for some sound training in dialectics and the scholastic philosophy. John Calvin speedily outstripped all his competitors in grammatical studies, and by his skill and acumen as a student of philosophy, and debate. Although not yet ordained, Calvin preached several sermons to the people." (Quote from greatsite.com)

I began reading the 'W.C' when I was, I suppose, 15 years of age. I did not know God in a personal, devotional manner until then. As, however, I read - and re-read - the Shorter Chatechism, I began to see the altogether loveliness of Jesus, my Lord and Saviour. I have moved from the 'purist' semi-sabbitarianism of this book, but, oh what a concise summary it presents, of the whole, vast body of Christian divinity. And, what a history! Second only to the Bible itself in changing this Scotland, England, Ireland and wales of ours into a cohesive, united Kingdom that once worshipped the Almighty, this book is to be treasured. It shows, clearly and with reverence, the way to salvation. By reading it, carefully imbibing its contents and applying them to one's heart, might one find true rest, and a definite assurance one will escape the aweful judgement that will befall this earth. Some parts might seem archaic, to be sure; but every bit is rich in historical relevance. And, now its available in Kindle: praise the Lord! I am a man in my seventies, and feel like a wee laddie again.

This work by the Puritan Divines, is the catechism of Protestantism. If one is a protestant, no need to be confused about any point of doctrine or the Christian life anymore. This will not only answer your questions on such matters and strengthen ones faith. This is one book that is most useful, to learn, to help one deepen their spiritual life safely.

It was very good ebook flowing easily. It explains the main points of confession of faith. At the end some problem with pedobaptism which I disagree but overall I personally suggest the ebook!!!

To understand and comprehend this work is to understand God's
revealation of himself to sinful man.
Much needed read in these days of froth and bubble
