When I woke up this morning, I looked on my nightstand for a book to take to work to read on break. In part because my friend Noah had recently blogged about it, I remembered that today was Reformation Day. So I selected accordingly:
John Calvin, the French Protestant Reformer, was a prolific writer, probably best known for his Institutes of the Christian Religion, as well as his set of commentaries on the Bible (appropriately known as Calvin's Commentaries). This book contains a selection of letters that Calvin wrote to many different people, including William Farel, Martin Luther, Philip Melanchthon, Thomas Cranmer, and John Knox.
