Book Description

Martin Luther said that ‘once the pure and certain Word is taken away, there remains no consolation, no salvation, no hope’. That is where the church found itself just before the Reformation. No man did more to point the church back to God’s inerrant Word than John Calvin. Having accepted Scripture’s claims concerning itself, Calvin laboured, as few others have, to make this revelation known to his own hearers and, through his published writings, to generations that succeeded him. The church owes a great debt to Calvin the theologian, commentator, and preacher. This brief study is an indication of that debt to this ‘man of God’s Word’. Its aim is to encourage Christians to read and to hear Scripture as God’s true Word to helpless sinners.
