This collection of sermons from the book of Genesis, deals with an awesome topic that has throughout time been repeatedly misunderstood, unfairly ignored, but most often shamefully denied and taught against. Calvin will cause the reader of these sermons to rightly understand this profound doctrine, to come away with the Biblical truth of the Sovereignty of the Creator, and to understand that God is God and needs not man to excuse or explain away the power of the Potter over the clay as he makes to dishonor the vessels of wrath fitted to destruction.
This book contains a Foreword by The Rev. David J. Engelsma, Professor of Dogmatics and Old Testament Studies at the Theological School of the Protestant Reformed Churches. There is also an Index of Scriptures referred to by Calvin, and an extensive Subject Index.
