Every Protestant owes a debt of gratitude to the Reformers, especially for one of their most precious gifts to us: expository exultation.

This week we celebrate Reformation Day, the day Martin Luther boldly banged his ninety-five theses to the church door with nails and a hammer: October 31, 1517. Of course, he more likely glued the document with poster paste. And he probably left the decoupage to an assistant. Theatrics or not — the date marks the ignition of what would grow into the Protestant Reformation. Last time, in episode 1387, we looked at whether or not we should read dead white guys. Or are they now irrelevant? And as we inch our way closer to Reformation Day this year, we take a look at the legacy of Reformer John Calvin, and to do it, I will share a clip from Pastor John’s 1997 biography on Calvin and his role in shaping the Reformation and our Reformed tradition as we know it today. Here’s what Pastor John had to say.
