Thank God for France
Did you know that at one point in the Reformation nearly 50% of the French were Reformed? And three of the four statues of the Reformation Wall were French: John Calvin, William Farel, and Theodore Beza. Most of John Calvin's seminary students were French. It was a Frenchman, Jacques Lefevre d'Etaples, who greatly influenced Luther on his view of justification.
