In this attractive volume, Simonetta Carr introduces young readers to the life, thought, and work of John Calvin, one of the most famous Reformers of the Christian church.  Readers will come to know Calvin’s personality, his devotion to God and the church, and the personal challenges he faced.  They will understand the struggles of the early Reformed church faced at that time, not only surviving attacks of the Roman Catholic Church, but also achieving a clear identity and a unified doctrine.  Simply written, and full of interesting facts, this book makes a great gift for children.

Ideal for ages 7-10.

“Calvin said that it was very difficult for him to disagree with teachings that he had accepted for so long, but he knew that the Bible was the only truth. In his writing he said that it was God who changed his heart and mind, giving him a great “desire to make progress” in the truth he had just found..."

The parents of four ourselves, my wife and I are eager to learn of new materials we can use and recommend. This is surely a resource that we would noise abroad. A translator of Reformed materials into Italian as well as a teacher, Simonetta is remarkably gifted. She knows the history and theology of the Reformation well, yet also knows how to ‘translate’ for our children. The Reformed community really needs this kind of edifying literature for our covenant youth.
