Anybody Want to Read The Institutes?


In about a week, we are going to begin Thursday Morning Theology Breakfast here in Wilson (what an original name!). We are taking up John Calvin's Institutes of the Christian Religion. Below is the schedule for books 1 and 2. Books 3 and 4 will follow, and, God willing, we will finish sometime in mid-2008. Thursday mornings will never be the same!
If you live in or around Wilson, consider joining us. If you live elsewhere, consider getting together two or three of your friends and starting your own Theology Breakfast (or Dinner).

I just placed a big Amazon order and the 2 volume Institutes is in there.

I am sure your time will be profitable as you let Calvin put the glory of Christ on display.

Wish I could join you.

This is appealing, but I have books from the DG conference I still need to get through.
