Happy Birthday, John Calvin

Yesterday, renowned theologian John Calvin (were he still alive) would have turned 500. The importance of this day has been covered by nearly every reformed person I know on the blogosphere, but a particularly helpful post can be found at Kevin Deyoung's blog here. For my part, instead of answering why Calvin is still relevant in today's world (that's been answered well in many other places), I will just affirm that, yes, he is and insist that whether or not you are reformed, you should read some of his work. I hope that we, the whole Church, can regain the sense of awe and reverence for God that John Calvin clearly had and rejoin with him in living our lives Soli Deo Gloria; To God's glory alone!
