John Calvin for the 21st Century

There is an upcoming conference that Justin Taylor has mentioned on his blog as well as some audio from a recent conference Magnifying God: The Legacy of John Calvin in the 21st Century.

I realize that John Calvin is somewhat of a controversial figure for those who are not familiar with his work.  All I ask is that you drop any type of baggage that may go with his name and actually read his work such as The Institutes of the Christian Religion before making any type of opinion about him.  I have been through The Institutes and they are life changing.  Although you may not agree with everything he writes about you can definitely see his vision and heart for God through The Institutes.  Calvin is a gem of a theologian and one of the greatest Christian thinkers in church history.  You will be blessed!

Below is some information on an upcoming conference and some audio from a recent conference.
