Calvin’s Sermons on Deuteronomy

John Calvin preached 200 sermons on Deuteronomy. They have been dropped down the memory hole. Calvinist seminary professors have never heard of them, let alone read them. Until today, they had an excuse. Not any longer.

In 1583, a translation of them appeared in English. This was ignored, then forgotten. Over four centuries later (1987), the Banner of Truth Trust reprinted this English edition, in facsimile copy. Today, a used copy sells for $100 or more.

In 2009, I donated money to American Vision to have a team of transcription specialists in India convert the photocopy text into digital text. It took them a year. Late last year, American Vision posted the digital text online. It put this into the public domain.

A dedicated woman voluntarily proofed the digital text, and then produced clean copy. A church in the Philippines is now posting her cleaned-up text. The public can now read these sermons, which have been ignored for 450 years.

I want people to know about these remarkable documents. Seminary professors at Calvinist seminaries would be wise to read them. They will have to revise their old lecture notes on what Calvin thought about the Mosaic law.
