Happy 500th Birthday, Calvin!

John Calvin turns 500 years old today! In honor of this special occasion here are some resources and offers to help you get acquainted with one of the most important men in Church History. What sets Calvin apart is his relentless focus on the greatness of God. Everywhere in Scripture he saw the majesty of God and the glory of Christ. And everywhere in his life and ministry he proclaimed it! May we do the same.
