"John Calvin: A Gospel Burning the Soul -

A Mind Changing the World"

October 7 - November 18, 2018

"I think it would be a fitting banner over all of John Calvin's life and work - 'zeal to illustrate the glory of God'.  The essential meaning of John Calvin's life and preaching is that he recovered and embodied a passion for the absolute reality and majesty of God.  That is what I want you to see."  - John Piper

Let’s read through Institutes of the Christian Religion

by John Calvin

For many Christians, a book of systematic theology is nothing but intimidating. Calvin’s is one of the very first efforts to summarize the Christian message and is still the model by which other such books are structured and measured. We will work through the work slowly and you will learn to deeply appreciate this wonderful contribution to the church of Christ.
