- Calvin's Prayer for illumination before the sermon
Calvin's expository sermons to the great congregation of St Peter's, Geneva, taken down in shorthand and then published across Europe, were among the most sought-after volumes of the sixteenth century. In the late 1570s, translated from the French, these bulky volumes flowed through London's bookshops and none was more popular than the 'One hundred Sermons on the Epistles of St Paul to Timothy and Titus' which appeared for the first time in 1579.
For the first time in more than 450 years, Calvin's Sermons on Titus have been translated afresh into English. These sermons are not merely an updating of the language of Laurence Thomson's 1579 English translation, but Robert White's new translation goes back to Calvin's original French.
