Joel Beeke On John Calvin

Peter Lawley

In this special episode we will be listening to a conversation between Bill and Revd Dr Joel Beeke concerning the reformation and particularly John Calvin. Dr Beeke is president and professor of systematic theology and homiletics at Puritan Reformed Theological Seminary, a pastor of the Heritage Reformed Congregation in Grand Rapids, Michigan, editor of Banner of Sovereign Grace Truth, and editorial director of Reformation Heritage Books.

Our discussion with him on the topic of the reformation is motivated by the upcoming 500th anniversary of this momentous time in Church history, which has been such an instrument of God’s blessing on his people both then and for us today. We are fortunate enough to be able to host a conference in October to specially mark this important anniversary and Dr Beeke has agreed to speak. The whole schedule will include lectures from the following:

  • Revd Dr Joel Beeke
  • Revd John J Murray
  • Revd Dr Jon D Payne
  • Revd Dr Geoffrey Thomas
    Alongside the seminary’s own men:
  • Revd Dr Kevin Bidwell
  • Revd Dr Ian Hamilton
  • Revd Dr Bill Schweitzer
