Calvinist missionaries. If you think that sounds like an oxymoron, you&'re not alone. Yet a close look at John Calvin&'s life and writing reveals a man who was unambiguously passionate about the spread of the gospel and the salvation of sinners. Clearing away longstanding misunderstanding and stereotypes, Michael Haykin and Jeffrey Robinson highlight the fervent Great Commission vigor underlying all of Calvin&'s theology and ministry. From training pastors at his Genevan Academy to sending missionaries to the jungles of Brazil, Calvin consistently sought to encourage and equip Christians for the cause of Christ. This fascinating study shows how Calvin influenced generations of his theological heirs&-including the Puritains, Jonathan Edwards, and Samuel Pearce&-to take the good news of salvation to the very ends of the earth.
