DescriptionIt is difficult to exaggerate the importance of preaching during the period of European reformation. This book recognizes the centrality of John Calvin's preaching to his reforming program. This study elucidates the reformer's teaching within the very concrete historical situation in Geneva in 1550-1551. What emerges is a clearer picture of Calvin the preacher, Calvin the pastor as he struggles to commend the love of God to a difficult generation.
