Read Calvin in 2009!


In case you didn't know, 2009 marks the 500th anniversary of John Calvin's birth. So what better motivation could there be to read Calvin's Institutes from cover to cover! Over at Reformation 21 they're 'Blogging the Institutes' to help keep people disciplined in their reading. You can get a reading plan here, breaking up the Institutes into bitsize chunks to be read in (just under) a year. If you didn't start on the 5th January, don't worry: some strange American holidays have no readings, nor do weekends, and the plan ends on 18th Dec; so all that should give you time to catch up.
