Calvin clarifies the basics of our Christian faith with expositions typically rich, practical, and direct. The translation is literal--staying true to Calvin's native expression and retaining the spirit of the great Genevan Reformer.

As these sermons met the heart hunger of the refugees in Geneva, so, today, they will meet the personal needs of God's people for sound, biblical doctrine. The key introductory message is from John 1:1-5 on Christ's deity, with following expositions on the nativity of Christ (Luke 2:1-14), the passion of Christ (8 sermons), the resurrection of Christ (Matthew 28:1-10), the ascension of Christ (4 sermons), the day of Pentecost (4 sermons), and the second coming of our Lord (2 Thessalonians 1:6-10).

Though Calvin did not follow the Church year in his preaching, translator Leroy Nixon arranged these select messages to conveniently follow the Christian calendar--providing study, teaching, and preaching resources for Christmas, Lent, Easter, Ascension and Pentecost Sunday.

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.

 

Endorsements 

"Calvin puts the saving work of Christ in such a way that His saving power surges through your soul." - Leroy Nixon, the translator

"The gospel is the 'power of God.' We are forever indebted to John Calvin for his writing and preaching on the gospel of grace. In this edition Calvin mines the gospel deeply and in doing so shows the reader the power of God not only for conversion but for all of life. Thank you Solid Ground for giving us treasures from the past so that we might invest those treasures in generations yet to come." - Ray Rhodes, Jr. President of Nourished in the Word Ministries

"Calvin had no weapon but the Bible. He preached from the Bible every day, and under the power of that preaching the city began to be transformed. As the people of Geneva acquired knowledge of God's Word and were changed by it, the city became, as John Knox called it later, a New Jerusalem from which the gospel spread to the rest of Europe, England, and the New World." - James Montgomery Boice
