For those of you who might be interested, I am speaking at an upcoming mini-conference being held at Southern Seminary, November 2, 2011. I will be speaking on Pierre Viret from a much-expanded form of a paper I delivered at the Refo500 Research Consortium (RefoRC) in Zürich last June, and will be drawing connections between his ecclesiology, his political writings, and his piety in a way that I hope will be helpful.
The conference is being hosted by The Andrew Fuller Center for Baptist Studies at the Southern Baptist Theological Seminary in Louisville, Kentucky. Many, many, thanks to Dr. Michael A. G. Haykin for the invitation and opportunity.
