Preached in Geneva from 1550 to 1551, these 28 sermons demonstrate the Reformer's high regard for God's Word and how its warnings against idolatry, superstition, inhumane acts, greed, and a host of other social and personal sins have a continuing relevance for every generation. 433 pages, softcover.

Twenty-eight sermons preached at Geneva in 155051. Calvin highlights the centrality of Scripture and concentrates on the doctrine of God, providence, pain, evil, and suffering.
Calvins vibrant and vital preaching is heard in these sermons on Micah translated by veteran Calvin scholar Benjamin Farley. Though preached centuries ago to Calvins Geneva congregation, the sermons come alive for our time through this superb translation.
Farley is a seasonal interpreter of Calvins legacy, and I welcome his fresh translation of Calvins Sermons on the Book of Micah. Calvins vocation as a minister of the divine Word is nowhere better seen than in his pulpit work, and these sermons give us new insight into Calvin the preacher.
