A Great Introduction to Calvin and the Reformed Faith

Bob%20Godfrey.jpgHere is a link to a great lecture on John Calvin.  This is from Dr. W. Robert Godfrey's series of lectures entitled "Heroes of the Faith."  For those of you who don't know him, Dr. Godfrey is the president of Westminster Seminary California and professor of church history.

Dr. Godfrey is a superb lecturer--this one is a real gem and one of his best.  This is also a great lecture to send to your evangelical/Arminian friends who may have misconceptions about Calvin and Calvinism.    Click here: - John Calvin

OK, I give, it's a great piece. Audience seems to be trying to laugh a little too hard, though, IMHO, FWIW.

I found Dr. W. Robert Godfrey's lecture on Calvin to be captivating, inspiring, lively, naturally humorous and refreshing, and informative.

Most importantly, it does not just recite historical facts about Calvin, but it summarizes how Calvin viewed true faith which I found extremely edifying.

I've got a question. I was reading in WSC's recent newsletter an address by Dr Godfrey on being missional and reformed. He spoke of preachers who graduated from Geneva and planted churches in France. Many were burned at the stake and had their tongues cut out so they couldn't sing psalms while they were being burned. Any idea of a book which discusses these men trained under Calvin? I'll have to listen to this when I get home. Many thanks!
