"Reymond's book is succinct and comprehensive, appreciative and probing, historical and theological, scholarly and pastoral. Especially valuable is Reymond's treatment of the burning of Servetus...that ameliorates to some degree Calvin's involvement in the tragedy."
David Calhoun, (1937–2021) Professor of Church History, Covenant Theological Seminary, St. Louis, Missouri
"...tells the story of Calvin's life and thought in a compact and compelling way that will serve to acquaint readers with the warm human character of Calvin... His description of Calvin's masterful statement at the Lausanne Disputation of 1536 is by itself worth the price of the book."
William Barker, Professor of Church History, Emeritus, Westminster Theological Seminary, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania
"...sheds new light on a famous and familiar name. His writing style is scholarly and authoritative... intensely interesting reading."
D. James Kennedy, (1930-2007) Late Pastor of Coral Ridge Presbyterian Church, Fort Lauderdale, Florida
"It is astonishing how much information Professor Reymond has packed into such a small volume. No student of the Reformation should be without it. Robert Reymond has done the Christian Church a great service in his work, lifting the veil, letting us see the true man of God and the enormous force for good that he has been right down to the present time"
