This Was John Calvin- Halsema****

I have read a great deal of John Calvin. I use his commentaries regularly. His theological insights and his pastoral mind are always revealing of the text and applicable to the body of Christ.

I had never read a biography of Calvin. My respect for the man has risen greatly, if that were possible. My youngest of six children is Calvin. We named him when I was reading the Institutes studying for the ministry.

After reading Calvin's life, I am even that much more glad we named our boy Calvin. If our boy gets an ounce of the will, spirit and output of the man who was John Calvin, he will do well.
