Founding Father

This Friday is the 500th anniversary of John Calvin's birth.

Our church is starting a special three week Sunday School series on Calvin, and I'd hoped to do a review of Calvinism in the Las Vegas Airport: Making Connections in Today's World for this blog.

Sadly, I couldn't make that happen. But I can highly recommend the book (loaned to me a few years ago by a Dutch Calvinist turned PC(USA) friend) and share Amazon.com's Product Description: A friendly, conversational look at what Calvinism has to say to the 21st century world, this book clears up some misconceptions about Calvinism and shows Calvinists how to live gently and respectfully with Christians who disagree as well as with non-Christians who have no clue what TULIP means.

This is a book I could happily reread!

Knowing Mouw personally (well, not on any kind of a first-name basis, but I work at Fuller, where he is President), I'm a bit embarrassed to admit this is one I haven't read yet.

He's such a great writer; this book made me want to pick up more of his work.

Best book I read on Calvin was William J Bouwsma's 'John Calvin - A Sixteenth century Portrait.'
