The Piety of John Calvin is an anthology that promotes 'a warm personal grasp' of Calvin, the man. This book seeks to show the Christian man as he saw himself, to see the Christian life as he understood it, and to examine both his theoretical exposition or prayer and his own prayers, in the liturgy and for other occasions. Here is a treasure. With impeccable scholarship and insight, Battles picks out products of Calvin's pen that take us closest to his heart, and presents them in a way that gives them fullest force. What a godly man! And what a wonderful book!
