The Desiring God conference on John Calvin wrapped-up this morning in Minneapolis, Minnesota. Audio and video of the sessions are now available from the conference website.
I’m still making my way through the messages, but I especially enjoyed Doug Wilson’s contributions, which were two-fold. First, Piper interviewed Wilson about his new movie “Collision,” a documentary in which Wilson faces-off against the atheist Christopher Hitchens. Wilson’s dictum concerning apologetics is insightful: You never try to win an argument; you try to win the man. That’s a good word indeed.
Second, Wilson’s delivered an outstanding lecture on John Calvin’s view of scripture. Calvin remains a giant today because of his absolute devotion to the Bible as God’s word and the final authority on all knowledge. Wilson’s exposition on this point was insightful and relevant.
