Free Calvin Book: Sermons on Deuteronomy 27 & 28
In searching for a Calvin quote, I came across an on-line version of Covenant Enforced: Sermons on Deuteronomy 27 and 28.
“John Calvin preached through the book of Deuteronomy on weekdays from March, 1555, to July, 1556. In all, he preached 200 sermons, expounding the book in detail and making applications to the social and political life of Geneva, as well as to the personal lives of her citizens. The fifteen sermons selected here have not been seen in English since they were first translated and published in 1583. In this volume, editor James B. Jordan has revised Arthur Golding's translation into modern English, making Calvin's words come alive with renewed impact. These sermons are as timely today as when they were first preached. Cultures that depart from God fall under His judgment. So says the Bible, and so said John Calvin. Cultures that obey God, however, receive His blessing. If there is a message that the Western world needs to hear at the present time, surely this is it.”
