John Calvin and his passion for the majesty of God
"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. (c) AudioFile 2009, Portland, Maine"
