John Calvin

By Revd Dr David Smith  |  1991 Autumn Lectures

Revd Dr David Smith starts by looking at John Calvin’s life and how it shaped his thinking. Particularly focusing on the persecution of Christians in France, he describes Calvin as a ‘theologian for a suffering church’. The lecture then goes on to look in particular at Calvin’s well known works: The Institutes of the Christian Religion and at his biblical commentaries.
