On July 10th, 1509, the reformer John Calvin was born in France. For the last few days we have been learning about his influence as both a pastor and theologian. Today, we look at the life and legacy of John Calvin as a reformer.

Today’s guests include:

  1. Dr. D.G. Hart, Historian and Author
  2. Dr. Michael Haykin, Professor of Church History & Biblical Spirituality, Southern Baptist Theological Seminary
  3. Doug Phillips, President of Vision Forum Ministries

Dr. Lawson has written a wonderful book entitled: The Expository Genius of John Calvin ,published by the Reformation Trust, 2007.

Also, the Reformation Trust released a book in 2008 entitled: John Calvin: A Heart for Devotion, Doctrine, and Doxology. It is edited by Burk Parsons.  In it, you’ll find Dr. D.G. Hart’s chapter entitled: “The Reformer of Faith and Life.”
