Overview

Calvin had ideas on how we could live better lives - particularly how we could live in close harmony with God and each other - but because his ideas were radical, his life was filled with dramatic events and dangers. He was run out of town - and then welcomed back. He was accussed of being too harsh - and also too tender hearted. When he explained what the bible meant he was considered too logical and too spiritual! He must have been an amazing man to have caused such a stir!

Editorial Reviews

Christian Focus - J I Packer
"You have hit the high spots of Calvin's story in a very telling way. The book will go into the junior section of our church library, and I hope it will make its impact there....Keep writing. Keep publishing."
J I Packer ~ Board of Governors' Professor of Theology, Regent College, Vancouver, Canada
Christian Focus - Reformation 21 Blog
"The 500th anniversary of Calvin's birth has already produced some excellent material on Calvin However, perhaps one of the most useful has been published by Christian Focus in the Trailblazers series, in which Catherine Mackenzie has added to her repertoire of children's books by writing a young people's life of John Calvin. Ater Darkness Light is an extremely readable, short biography of Calvin, which I am sure many of our adults would also enjoy."
