John Calvin and His Passion for the Majesty of God

Format: Digital
, 2009
ISBN: 9781433505688


Nothing mattered more to John Calvin than the centrality, supremacy, and majesty of the glory of God. His aim, he wrote, was to “set before [man], as the prime motive of his existence, zeal to illustrate the glory of God”—a fitting banner over all of the great Reformer’s life and work.

In John Calvin and His Passion for the Majesty of God John Piper illuminates this theme in Calvin’s life and thought in a succinct but accessible fashion. Using Calvin as springboard, Piper wishes to impart a similar desire for all Christians.
