The essays in Tributes to John Calvin: A Celebration of His Quincentenary illuminate Calvin’s times, thought and legacy, and provide 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, theology, and the heritage he bequeathed the church. Their articles cover Calvin’s theology, soteriology, and ecclesiology, as well as his doctrines of assurance, worship, and Scripture. They examine Calvin as a Frenchman, lawyer, and liturgist. Other articles explore Calvin’s impact on the arts, Calvinism in Asia, and the influential women in Calvin’s life.

"Calvin’s impact on the Reformation is indisputable. Many see his imprimatur on Western Civilization to this day. These sermons by Reformed preachers manifest his abiding influence on Biblical preaching as well. Read, study and meditate on these Calvinistic sermons in Preaching Like Calvin: Sermons from the 500th Anniversary Celebration, and 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
