John Calvin is the most notable figure from the Reformed tradition. Unfortunately, he is often characterized as a stern and cerebral individual who had little concern for practical matters. However, Calvin was actually influential in promoting a profound sense of piety among early Protestantism. In āThe Soul of Lifeā, Joel R. Beeke presents the life and ministry of Calvin with a special emphasis on Calvinās efforts for cultivating healthy spirituality among the churches. The selections from Calvinās own work will give readers a firsthand look at Calvinās emphasis on godliness, and by Godās grace, will be a means for spurring on greater godliness in our day.
