This manuscript will soon be available under the title of Irenaeus on the Christian Faith. Payton’s book Turning Points in the History of Eastern Europe is also nearing publication.

Geneva College hosts the Colloquia Series each semester to challenging students to be engaged in the world around them and to formulate principled Christian responses. The Colloquia Series is open to the campus community and the public at no charge.

The Calvin 500 is an event celebrating the life and work of John Calvin (1509-1564) one of the most influential leaders of the Protestant Reformation. Calvin spent much of his life working for religious and social reform in Geneva, Switzerland, the city from which Geneva College gets its name.
