In 2013, we remembered the publication of the "Heidelberg Catechism" and the influence of Reformed theologians in England, including Heinrich Bullinger's Decades. For 2014: Tyndale's NT translation.

Frederic Louis Godet (1812 to 1900)

Reformed Church

Deep and positive.

Frederick Louis Godet was born in Neuchatel, Switzerland. Ordained in 1836, he pastored for twenty-two years, fifteen of them in Neuchatel. He then taught theology at Swiss Reformed seminary from 1851-1873. A prominent representative of Reformed theology, Godet combined deep Christian piety with positive Biblical criticism. His work strongly influenced orthodox Swiss theology. His most famous book was Commentary of the Gospel of St. John.
