John Calvin on Union with Christ

Contrary to some modern caricatures, predestination is not at the centre of Calvin’s teaching on the Christian life. Calvin, whose 500th birthday we’ve just celebrated, certainly taught and defended predestination; but the biblical heartbeat of his teaching about the Christian life is Union with Christ.

Preached at St Michael’s Anglican Cathedral, Wollongong, on 19 July 2009, at 7pm.
