"The quincentenary of Calvin’s birth last year produced a veritable host of books on the French Reformer, some tremendous, some so-so. This is one of the best, and no wonder: combine the richest themes of Calvin's theology and a stellar company of authors who know their subjects really well and you have the present volume. Truly a savory entrée of Calviniana!" - Michael Haykin
"Another book on Calvin? Yes! And welcome it is, for these addresses retain their spoken style and read like tracts encouraging us to view Scripture through Calvin’s lens—a perspective that proves itself more faithful as each anniversary of Calvin’s life or death passes by. Treasure!" - Derek Thomas
