New Release: Tributes to John Calvin

Here's a notice I just received from P&R Publishing.

Tributes to John Calvin: A Celebration of His Quincentenary
edited by David W. Hall


The essays in Tributes to John Calvin: A Celebration of His Quincentenary illuminate Calvin's times, thought, and legacy, and providing a celebratory tribute to one of the most influential people in history. This book commemorates the quincentenary of Calvin's birth (July 10, 1509) and attests to the remarkable fact that a French religious leader from a tiny village is still remembered half a millennium later.

Twenty-three leading Calvin scholars exhibit a firm understanding of Calvin's era, his understanding of Scripture, and the heritage he has bequeathed the church.

"I am encouraged by the publication of this book that brings together these worthy essays and papers."
—R. Albert Mohler Jr., President, The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary, Louisville

"Tributes to John Calvin will help you grow in your love for our sovereign God, who gave us his eternal Word, and godly leaders like Calvin, who taught us to see God's saving grace in Christ throughout the whole of the Scriptures."
—Peter A. Lillback, President, Westminster Theological Seminary, Philadelphia
"This collection of essays is a grand anthology commemorating the person, work, and legacy of John Calvin, who was a theologian and Reformer of great intelligence and deeply rooted piety."
—Joel R. Beeke, President, Puritan Reformed Theological Seminary, Grand Rapids

"This is rich fare and can be read with profit by anyone interested in the Genevan Reformer and his theology."
—I. John Hesselink, Former President and Emeritus Professor of Theology, Western Theological Seminary, Holland, Michigan
