John Calvin, one of the most important Protestant reformers of the 16th century, is well known as a theologian. However, he was also a caring preacher, pastor and spiritual leader. This volume in the dynamic Classics of Western Spirituality(TM) series highlights this significant but relatively unknown side of Calvin by exploring his piety and spirituality. This volume covers the scope of Calvin's life and work and includes sections on his life, theological orientation, liturgical and sacramental practices, the psalms, worship and prayer. The sources translated, some of which were previously translated by other persons, include letters, sermons, prayers, lectures, scriptural commentary, worship services and theological writings. While other translations of Calvin's works are available, this volume stands out because of its emphasis on a lesser-explored aspect of his work, his piety. Students and scholars of Protestant theology and spirituality and those with an interest in Reformation studies will find this to be an indispensable addition to their library.
