Calvin Conversations Commence

Starting this month, The CTS Bookstore and Library will begin hosting a five-week series of conversations focused on the impact of John Calvin’s teachings. “Calvin, like so many people of historic influence, has a very diverse following,” said Anthony Elia, Director of Library and Educational Technologies. “We think this series will attract a lot of attention both on- and off-campus.”

The series will be conducted by five faculty members of Christian Theological Seminary who are deeply rooted in the tradition of Calvin’s thought. Each professor will talk about his importance in their own thinking, before fielding questions from participants.

“This is exactly the type of programming we’d like to do more of through the CTS Bookstore,” said CTS Bookstore Manager Nick Buck. “Things that are enlightening, entertaining and showcase some of the interesting people we have here at CTS.”




Each of the Calvin Conversations will be held on a Thursday from 4:15 – 5:15 in Room 122 at CTS (near the Café and Shelton Auditorium).
