Happy Reformation Day!

Today is the anniversary of Martin Luther posting his 95 theses on the castle church doors at Wittenberg, Germany in 1517, starting a chain reaction leading to the Reformation. This year also marks the 500 year anniversary of the birth of John Calvin. I am currently reading two new books on Calvin published in this anniversary year, one by Bruce Gordon simply called, Calvin, and the other by W. Robert Godfrey titled, John Calvin: Pilgrim and Pastor. For those of you in the Washington D.C. area, a local church is hosting a 6 week lecture series titled “Calvin in the Capital” on Thursday nights. There are two more lectures left in the series. I made the first one and it was superb.
