Editorial Reviews

VOYA
The thirteen volumes currently in the Spiritual Leaders and Thinkers series explore major religious figures in history and the present day. The series introduction states that the selected subjects, which include Aimee Semple McPherson, Martin Luther, and Mary Baker Eddy among others, were chosen because through their beliefs, ideas, and actions, they have defined a path or direction, providing illumination to followers, and cultivated support by setting an example and inspiring others. Each volume provides biographical information, pertinent historical information putting the subject in the context of his or her times, the effects, a short analysis of the person's major beliefs and thoughts, a section of illustrations and photographs related to the subject, and excerpts from the person's writings or from related writings by others about that person. The books include many valuable student aids, particularly the chronology and time line and the listed Web sites. John Calvin's journey from France to Geneva and from Catholicism to Protestantism is traced through his achievements, problems, contacts with others, and his personal life. The development of his ideas, particularly as they differ with Catholicism and the beliefs of Martin Luther, is well described by Davis. There is a fair amount of detail concerning the disagreements over the sacraments, particularly the communion/Eucharist. Calvin's difficulties and weaknesses are also mentioned, as well as his great achievements. For the most part, Davis's writing is easy to understand and interesting. (Spiritual Leaders and Thinkers).

School Library Journal
Gr 9 Up-These two religious reformers and scholars are given thorough treatment in these detailed, if somewhat dry, biographies. The texts cover their work, personal lives, colleagues, and friendships while the last 25 pages or so offer chapter notes, excerpts from their writings, and standard back matter. Each book has an eight-page insert of good-quality, black-and-white and full-color photos and reproductions, but the books' overall appearance is uninviting. Students researching these men and their influences on the course of human history will find plenty of information but will have to wade through the dense and rather dull writing styles to get it.-Carol Fazioli, Gwynedd-Mercy College, Gwynedd Valley, PA Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.
