Product Description

When John Calvin preached through the book of Micah in 1550-1551, he addressed a social situation not unlike Micah's, or ours today. The prophet Micah confronted idolatry, superstition, confusion, alienation, inhumane acts, and personal and social desolation in his own day. And he continues to speak to us, through the Genevan Reformer, in these twenty-eight sermons.

Calvin's commitment to the sovereignty of divine grace “underlies almost every sentence he preaches in the series,” writes Benjamin Farley in his introduction to this volume. Other themes receiving special attention are God's Word, his providence and human suffering, and man's role in sanctification.
