John Calvin: Faithful pastor and Catholic theologian

By Revd Ian Hamilton  |  2017 Autumn Lectures

John Calvin stands out as one of the most influential Reformers. As a pastor and theologian he devoted his life to teaching Scripture and equipping God’s people to live for Christ. For most of his ministry he endeavoured to plant the truth of the Gospel into the life of the church and city of Geneva. Ian Hamilton believes that, far from being cold or clinical, Calvin’s theology is full of wonder at the amazing grace of God in Jesus Christ. John Calvin helps us to see that the biblical Gospel leads to God-centred living.
