STEVEN J. LAWSON, the senior pastor of Christ Fellowship Baptist Church in Mobile, Alabama, returns to discuss the theme of his highly acclaimed work on a greatly misunderstood figure, THE EXPOSITORY GENIUS OF JOHN CALVIN (click here for more info). The previous broadcast on this topic can be found here.
As Pastor Lawson said in his own words, “The aim of this book is to raise the bar for a new generation of expositors.”
As MonergismBooks.com describes this work,
"Looking to the past for outstanding Bible-based, Christ-centered, and life-changing preaching, Dr. Steven J. Lawson focuses on sixteenth-century Geneva, Switzerland. It was there that John Calvin ministered for decades as a faithful shepherd to a flock of believers. Here is an intimate portrait of Calvin the preacher—the core beliefs that determined his preaching style, the steps he took to prepare to preach, and the techniques he used in handling the Word of God, interpreting it, and applying it to his congregation. In the pulpit ministry of the great Reformer, Dr. Lawson finds inspiration and guidance for today’s church and calls on modern pastors to follow the Reformer’s example of strong expository preaching."
Dr. Derek W. H. Thomas, Professor of systematic and practical theology, Reformed Theological Seminary, Jackson, Mississippi, said of Lawson's book:
“An infectious appreciation of the preaching of John Calvin from the pen of Steven Lawson. No one reading this volume can fail to appreciate the debt we owe to the Genevan Reformer. Lawson has consulted the best of current scholarship and has produced a comprehensive distillation of the contours of the Reformer’s preaching and, with it, a compelling advocacy of consecutive expository preaching. A magnificent achievement.”
