About-

Conversations with Calvin: Daily Devotions provides extracts from the commentaries of John Calvin. The short devotion that follows explains the meaning of Calvin’s quotation in light of his overall writings. It also explores the meanings of Calvin’s thought for contemporary Christian living. The goal is to introduce readers to Calvin’s theology so it can be readily understood, and also to see ways Calvin’s theological insights—expressed in the initial quotation—can shape our beliefs and the living of Christian faith in today’s world.

Endorsements & Reviews-

“Calvin was a pastor, dedicated to serving God's church. He was committed to explaining and applying God's word to the members of Christ's body, day in and day out. This book offers an appealing welcome into the riches of Calvin's exegetical reflection, his effort to reflect what he learned from the Bible for others to see and use in their daily lives.”

—Elsie McKee, Princeton Theological Seminary



“Students reading Calvin for the first time frequently express surprise (and delight) over two things they find in the reformer’s writings: breadth and warmth. With this superb collection, Don McKim has given us daily opportunities to learn from both the diversity of Calvin’s works beyond the Institutes and the heart of a pastor always concerned to make theology useful and edifying. These devotions will surprise and delight both new and not-so-new readers of Calvin!”

—Kenneth J. Woo, Pittsburgh Theological Seminary



“This is a wonderful book in which Professor McKim introduces readers to the riches of Calvin's theology and piety in a manner that is both eminently accessible and wonderfully uplifting. The texts from Calvin are superbly chosen and McKim's comments clear and discerning. I cannot recommend this highly enough—it's a delightful volume.”

—Jon Balserak, University of Bristol
