Should be Released next week: 365 Days with CalvinPosted: November 8, 2008
For the 500th post on this blog, I thought I’d give you a little taste of the new title that Dr. Joel Beeke has done on John Calvin. Over the next year, Dr. Joel R. Beeke will have a number of titles (I know of 4 right now) coming out for Calvin’s 500th birthday. For next year (2009) this is one title you may want to use for a devotion throughout the 500th year of the birth of John Calvin. As the year 2009 is the 500th anniversary of John Calvin’s birth, 365 Days with Calvin invites readers to celebrate this memorable occasion by prayerfully reading these daily portions culled from Calvin’s writings. A biographical sketch co-authored by Joel R. Beeke and Michael A. G. Haykin is provided at the beginning of the book, which will make readers more aware of Calvin’s contribute to the Reformed tradition. Each day’s selection contains four parts: a biblical text, suggested further reading, Calvin’s comments on the main text, and a meditation on those comments designed to stimulate further reflection, examination, and action. Pick up your copy of 365 Days with Calvin and make this coming year a memorable one. It is our prayer that the spirit of genuine piety that so enveloped Calvin may also penetrate you as you read this book. May your 365 days with Calvin be a year of rich growth.
