John Calvin's Catholic Faith

On October 11, 2012 I presented the Meeter Center Lecture, "'Lift Up Your Hearts': John Calvin's Catholic Faith."  (It was a delicious irony that I was delivering this talk on Calvin's Catholic faith on the 50th anniversary of the beginning of Vatican II--when the Roman church finally began listening to him!)  I'm making the talk available via Scribd.  (Audio may be forthcoming.)

I was going for "winsome polemic" here: there are parts that will push different buttons for different communities, including my own.  I hope the provocations can be received in the spirit they were intended: as an invitation to reconsider (or better, remember) what it means to be "Reformed."
