Celebrating Calvin's 500th

The 500th anniversary of the birth of John Calvin, the theological father of the Reformed tradition, is coming up July 10. This video is a trailer for the a documentary produced by the Witherspoon Press to commemorate the occasion.

I just got my copy of John Calvin, Pilgrim and Pastor by W. Robert Godfrey and plan to finish it before the anniversary. I am not as familiar with Calvin as I should be, and this looks like a good biography for an interested layperson (review to follow when I finish it). Aside to Justice Seeker: Not available on Kindle, alas.

Are you or your church doing anything for Calvin's 500th birthday? If so, please share in the comments.

Au contraire! The Calvin bio you describe IS available for Kindle.

My bad. How did I miss that?

How many Presbyterians does it take to blow out 500 candles on Calvin's birthday cake?

None. No candles allowed.
