What Calvinism has done for America – is a book, written by John Clover Monsma, a Dutch-American Presbyterian minister turned writer, journalist and editor on religious issues.
In the pages of this, the author tried to briefly talk about what, in his opinion, is the source of American foundations.
In doing so, the author was fully aware of the fact that he was swimming against the tide, that most authors have a completely different point of view on this matter - a point of view to which the American public is so accustomed that any attempt to create a diverse opinion can easily be viewed as doomed to failure.
This book covers the history of Calvinism, its origins, and its application to people's lives.
The book begins with Calvinism in old England.
It also tells about John Calvin and the English reform movement.
The book also covers the history of The Men of the Mayflower, Puritan migration and how the American nation was built: its church life, politics, social life, education.
"What Calvinism has done for America" is a really great book for anyone interested in history or religion. It does a really great job of telling the story of how the Protestant movement started in England and spread to America. John Calvin was a central character in the book. He was one of the key figures, even if he didn't show up until later. The book was also really engaging because the author wrote it in the first person and took the reader on a journey.
I will not stop thinking about this book for a very, very long time.
