Since the year 2009 is John Calvin’s 500th Anniversary (born July 10, 1509), I’ve decided to do some reading of his books.  He really is a man that is often misunderstood and stereo-typed in Christian circles.  Anyhow, I’ve decided to read a short book called Truth for All Time (also because he wrote it at the age of 29, the same age as myself) and I highly recommend it as an introduction to Calvin and his writings.  Here is what the publisher wrote concerning the book…

John Calvin knew that if the biblical truths rediscovered at the Reformation were to spread throughout the world, they would have to be presented in a form that ordinary people could understand. So, during the winter of 1536-37, the 29-year old Calvin wrote, in French, his Brief Outline of the Christian Faith.
