This is a
valuable and rare volume of sermons by John Calvin touching upon subjects
so significant to the Christian church. The sermons cover chapters in
Genesis with serious examination of Abraham, "the friend of God," first,
as to Abraham's courage in rescuing his nephew Lot, second, as to his
godliness in paying tithes to Melchizedek, third, as to Abraham's faith in
believing God, and lastly, as to his obedience in offering his son, Isaac.
The book is complete and unabridged, and is not to be
confused with Calvin's commentaries, nor is it a facsimile.
The English translation of the original French is by Thomas
Stocker (1592), but it has been edited to reflect
contemporary spelling, and bracketed words in italics are
inserted following some antiquated terms or phrases as a
convenience for the modern reader.
The brief Scripture sections preceding each sermon have been
stylishly typeset to approximate their original appearance.
This was done for two reasons: to maintain an accurate
reproduction of the English text translated from Calvin's
French and to offer to the reader a taste of the rich and
full majesty that so beautifully flows from translations of
the Reformation era.
Comment: "... very searching and encouraging." - S. Wales
