Looking to the past for outstanding Bible-based, Christ-centered, and life-changing preaching, Dr. Steven J. Lawson focuses on sixteenth-century Geneva, Switzerland. It was there that John Calvin ministered for decades as a faithful shepherd to a flock of believers.
Here is an intimate portrait of Calvin the preacher-the core beliefs that determined his preaching style, the steps he took to prepare to preach, and the techniques he used in handling the Word of God, interpreting it, and applying it to his congregation. In the pulpit ministry of the great Reformer, Dr. Lawson finds inspiration and guidance for todays church and calls on modern pastors to follow the Reformers example of strong expository preaching.
Dr. Steven J. Lawson is founder and president of OnePassion Ministries, a ministry designed to bring about a new reformation in the church. He is a Ligonier Ministries teaching fellow, director of the Doctor of Ministry program at The Masters Seminary, and host of the Institute for Expository Preaching. He has written more than two dozen books, including The Passionate Preaching of Martyn Lloyd-Jones, The Evangelistic Zeal of George Whitefield, and John Knox: Fearless Faith. He is on Twitter @DrStevenJLawson.
"Through an introductory study of John Calvins preaching, Steve Lawson provides a practical Homiletics I refresher course that can be read in one evening, but should be read annually for lifelong impact. Factual yet stimulating, simple yet penetrating, The Expository Genius of John Calvin contains many scriptural and theocentric golden nuggets and hands-on practical tips for beginning expositors and seasoned preachers alike. May God use it to revitalize Christ-centered and Spirit-empowered applicatory preaching in our needy day."
"An infectious appreciation of the preaching of John Calvin from the pen of Steven Lawson. No one reading this volume can fail to appreciate the debt we owe to the Genevan Reformer. Lawson has consulted the best of current scholarship and has produced a comprehensive distillation of the contours of the Reformers preaching and, with it, a compelling advocacy of consecutive expository preaching. A magnificent achievement."
"Calvins commitment to the word of God, whether as inscripturated or incarnate in Christ, is well-known. What has not been given its due, however, is his high regard for wordsboth the words of the Old and New Testament in their original languages and of the preacher in his sermons on the sacred text. Steve Lawsons study treats the second closely, and this is where this book will prove most valuable and is most urgently needed."
"The cure for the dys-exposition that afflicts todays pulpits has been available for five hundred years, as Steve Lawson so clearly documents in The Expository Genius of John Calvin. Preachers reading this book will be moved to take to heart Calvins encompassing belief in the sovereignty of Gods Wordas to its total sufficiency and massive potency. Further, they will be inspired to pursue the deep, enriching paths of lectio continua. This is a beautifully written, powerful, and convincing book. It is a must read for all who aspire to preach the word."
In this book, Dr. Steve Lawson has masterfully presented us with thirty-two keynotes that made Calvin the best preacher of the Reformation, all of them centered around the Word of God preached expositorily. He describes for us in a powerful as well as profound way how Calvin brought his congregation upward to gaze upon Gods glory as he preached verse by verse, then ended his sermons with prayers filled with the Word! Dr. Lawson is right in saying that because of the spiritual bankruptcy of our time, we need Calvins once again. I would make this book recommended reading in courses such as homiletics and missions for any serious pastor and student of theology.
