3 of 3 people found the following review helpful By Jeffrey M. Harvey on March 10, 2012
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Over an 18 month period from mid-1549 until early 1551, John Calvin delivered sermons from the first 7 chapters of the book of Acts. Forty-four of those sermons survive and are included in this wonderful volume from Banner of Truth Trust.

Many people think of Calvin as the sternest and most intimidating (maybe even the most frightening) of all the magisterial reformers. Here we have a collection of his sermons from 460 years ago; sermons in which he painstakingly worked his way though about 10 pages of Biblical text verse by verse, taking a year and a half to do it. One could probably be forgiven for thinking that curling up with a book like that would be a painful experience.

One would be wrong.

Calvin has gotten a bad rap, based much more on what people have said about him than on his own teaching and preaching. The Renaissance concept of ad fontes, returning to the sources, certainly applies here. If you want to know about Calvin, you should read Calvin.

These sermons show us Calvin as pastor, teaching his congregation the whole counsel of God. He's concerned about their knowledge of doctrine, their behavior in the world, and the strength and reputation of the Church. But, most of all, he's always passionate about bringing honor and glory to God.

Dr. Rob Roy McGregor brings the text to life with his excellent translation from the French. Many of the most commonly used translations of Calvin's works into English were done in the 1800's, often based on work done even earlier. That handicaps the modern reader with the burden of processing the out-dated English of the translation before he or she can get to what the author was trying to convey.

Dr. McGregor makes us feel as if we are in Calvin's congregation, listening to him speak.
