The Calvin Quincentenary

July 10, 2009 marks the 500th anniversary of the birth of John Calvin. In honor of this great theologian, the Calvin 500 Project has produced a blog, two books (A Theological Guide to Calvin’s Institutes and The Legacy of John Calvin) and is organizing an historic tour and conference in Paris, Strasborg, Bern, and Geneva’s St. Pierre Cathedral. David W. Hall of the Calvin 500 Project joins Christ the Center to discuss the project and the immensely influential theologian John Calvin.
