Book Review: Calvin's Preaching by T.H.L. Parker

I have appreciated T.H.L. Parker since the late 1960's when I read two of his books, Calvin's Sermons on Isaiah 53 and Calvin's Doctrine of the Knowledge of God. In reading these books, and now in reading his newest book, Calvin's Preaching, several things have impressed me about Parker: (1). His thorough knowledge of Calvin's ministry and theology; (2). His love for Christ and the Word of God; (3). His boldness in rebuking critics of the Word of God; and (4). His desire that his readers understand him and that they apply the truth in his books to their lives.
