John Calvin’s Catholic Faith

On October 11, 2012 I presented the Meeter Center Lecture, “‘Lift Up Your Hearts’: John Calvin’s Catholic Faith.”  (It was a delicious irony that I was delivering this talk on Calvin’s Catholic faith on the 50th anniversary of the beginning of Vatican II–when the Roman church finally began listening to him!)  I’m making the talk available via Scribd.  (Audio may be forthcoming.)

I was going for “winsome polemic” here: there are parts that will push different buttons for different communities, including my own.  I hope the provocations can be received in the spirit they were intended: as an invitation to reconsider (or better, remember) what it means to be “Reformed.”
