Under Calvins Spell Under Calvins Spell

A Tale of the Heroic Times in Old Geneva

by Alcock, Deborah

In 1902, when this book was first published, Alcock was considered the best Christian novelist around. This specific title has been rated as her best work. Alcock’s books remain popular, even in the original romantic style of her times. Her characters are real people, never totally perfect or totally despicable. She also avoids black and white contrasts between principal Reformed Christians of Calvin’s days with those carefree libertarians who in Geneva excelled in opposition. The author expertly weaves her plots, building suspense while describing faith and its challenges in a way that continues to be inspiring.
