During his own time and in the centuries that followed, this Genevans life and labors shook the West and blazed a trail for liberty around the globe, making him arguably the most important man of the last millennium. Calvins worldview spurred Huguenot freedom-fighters to resist tyranny in France, fueled evangelistic efforts to pagan tribes, and, with John Knoxs aid, rekindled freedoms fire among the sturdy Scots. Moreover, Calvins influence compelled a hardy group of Pilgrims to settle at Plymouth Rock, and later drove a rag-tag band of patriots to fight for American independence. Perfect for a family read-aloud, John Calvin: Man of the Millennium reveals this great man of God to a new generation of Christians in need of its own reformation.
