Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0875520596, Paperback)

The Piety of John Calvin is an invaluable collection of his prose and poetry, masterfully assembled to promote a more personal grasp of Calvin the man and his devotion to God. Chapters examine Calvin's spiritual pilgrimage and faith, his views of the Christian life and prayer, samples of his prayers, metrical Psalms set to music, and prose-poems adapted from Calvin's more lyrical writings.

Adding interest are Ford Lewis Battles's introduction "True Piety According to Calvin," David Hall's foreword featuring both Calvin and Battles, daughter Nancy Howitt-Battles's preface, and six Psalms from Calvin's Psalter with music arranged by Stanley Tagg.
