51mUwmraQuL._SL500_AA240_[1].jpgThe second volume in the Calvin 500 Series has appeared, a series of volumes written or edited by David Hall celebrating the 500th anniversary (in 2009) of the birth of John Calvin. I've just finished reading The Legacy of John Calvin (published this month by P & R). It is by far and away the best short biography (100 pages more or less) I have read on Calvin and the section on Calvin's humility (a half dozen pages) are worth the price of the book alone. An extraordinary achievement.
