In the midst of many course offerings on rts, this is a gem. Dr. Frank James is both knowledable and passionate. I really enjoyed Dr. James History of Christianity and this short seminar on Calvin did not disappoint me. Many distortions and misconceptions about John Calvin are demolished.
James is knowledgable about the subject, and offers a more balanced view of Calvin.
