John Calvin is inextricably linked to the Protestant Reformation. He had an abiding influence on the Church of his day, and his influence in our day is remarkable. It goes without saying that his name still sparks controversy on one hand and admiration on the other. His passion was the glory of God and for this he is exemplary. We live in a different day and age from John Calvin. However, the God he desired to serve and the gospel he sought to proclaim are unchanging. John Calvin sought to be a servant of Christ in his day and his life provides lessons for we who live in the 21st century.
With speaker Carl Trueman, these messages look at Calvin’s life, his theology of the Church, and examine one of the greatest theologies in the history of the Church, The Institutes of the Christian Religion.
