Calvin on The Mediator is an important reminder to the modern church of the great work accomplished in Institutes of the Christian Religion, Calvin’s masterpiece first published in 1536. It is also timely instruction on the vital doctrine of Christ as our Mediator: His humanity and unbroken divinity, and His offices as Prophet, Priest, and King. Publishing this edition in the 500th anniversary of Calvin’s birth is a milestone deserving every believer’s thoughtful consideration.
John Calvin (1509-1564), born in Noyon, Picardie, France, is at once the finest theologian of the Reformation and its most effective teacher. He was used of God together with Luther, Beza, and Knox, to return whole nations to Biblical Christianity. During the course of his ministry in Geneva, lasting nearly twenty-five years, Calvin lectured to theological students and preached an average of five sermons a week. In addition, he wrote a commentary on nearly every book of the Bible as well as numerous treatises on theological topics.
