What Can We Gain From Calvin Today?

Desiring God Ministries asked this question of Mark Talbot, Sam Storms, John Piper, Doug Wilson and Marvin Olasky. All of them are speakers at the Desiring God 2009 National Conference this year called "With Calvin in the Theater of God." Their answers are quite varied but very interesting.

What did they say? In a sentence here it is but you should listen to them. None are longer than three minutes. It will be time well spent.

Talbot: "We can gain an awareness that the best theology comes from ministering to people."

Storms: "We can gain a deep appreciation for the Lord's Supper."

Piper: "We can gain an orientation on the majesty and holiness of God."

Wilson: "We can gain a rock solid, absolute confidence in the Bible."

Olasky: "We can gain an understanding that it's important to write clearly without losing depth."
