Product Description

Kathy Childress, the translator from the original French of this book says, ‘Calvin exposes human nature with profound insight…he brings this world into sharp focus and enables us to see its frivolity. However, he does not leave us to wallow in despair, but points us to the Saviour…No sinner, having read these sermons, could mistake the remedy…The Lord Jesus Christ is the focal point…There is judgement here, enough to make the sinner quake with fear, but then there is also mercy to warm the heart and lift the fainting spirit’.

Author 

John Calvin (1509-1564) was a theological giant of the Protestant Reformation. A contemporary of Martin Luther, he had as much influence over this period of history as his German counterpart. In 1536 he published his famous Institutes of the Christian Religion, which was a systematic presentation of the Protestant position. His writings are still cherished and relevant today.
