In celebration of the five hundredth anniversary of John Calvin's birth (2009), Burk Parsons, editor of Tabletalk magazine and senior pastor at Saint Andrew's Chapel in Sanford, Fla., has brought together a group of pastors and scholars to reconsider Calvin's life and legacy.
In twenty succinct chapters, these men examine Calvin the man; his work (as a Reformer, a churchman, a preacher, a counselor, and a writer); and his teachings (on subjects as diverse as the Holy Spirit and prayer). What emerges is a multifaceted portrait of a man whose contributions to Christian thought and Christian living were significant indeed, a man whose life, work, and teachings are worthy to be remembered and studied even in the twenty-first century.
