In celebration of Calvin’s birthday week, Baker Book House on East Paris is hosting an important panel tomorrow night (Tuesday) from 7:00-8:30. The lineup is Karin Maag, director of the Meeter Center at Calvin College, who will “dispel the myths” around Calvin, including his part in the death of Servetus; Richard Muller, a world class scholar who knows more about Calvin than anyone you will ever meet, who will answer the question “Was Calvin a Calvinist?” (his answer is probably yes and no); and then myself, who has been given the topic, “The Emergent Church in the Hands of John Calvin (one of these topics—and presenters—is not like the others).
If you’ve never heard Muller, it’s worth coming just for him. You will never meet a finer scholar, and it’s free!
