Calvin for Children

John Calvin, Simonetta Carr
Christian Biographies for Young Readers (Series)
(Reformation Heritage Books, 2008), hb., 63 pp.
Ages 5+

In this 500th year since Calvin’s birth many books about his life are being released. I have already commented on Doug Bond’s forthcoming book on Calvin.

This book is the first in a new series which looks promising. It provides a nice overview of Calvin’s life and work for a younger audience. With nice illustrations, it covers the key points while also making comments on Calvin’s impact and connecting him with the broader historical and Reformation context.

This is a good resource.
