John Calvin understood the importance of prayer to the Christian life and wrote extensively on the subject in his Institutes of the Christian Religion. Now modern readers can come to a firmer grasp of how the Reformer viewed prayer by reading his actual prayers. One of the greatest depositories for Calvin's prayers is within his lectures on the Old Testament books of Jeremiah, Lamentations, Ezekiel, and the twelve Minor Prophets. Each lecture would end with a prayer that seemed extemporaneous and reflected, in retrospect, upon the text he had just taught. Compiled in this volume are 150 of these prayers, arranged by subject and accompanied by the Scripture passage Calvin was expounding. These rich prayers of the great Reformer provide a valuable devotional tool to assist us as we lift up our hearts to God.

About the Author:

Review:

Dustin Benge has made a great treasure accessible for all of us. These prayers of Calvin can now be enjoyed and used, and can be of great personal profit. A fresh and fine volume. A book to read and to practice repeatedly. --Herman J. Selderhuis, author of John Calvin: A Pilgrim s Life

Dustin Benge has done the church a great service by compiling this generous selection of prayers by the great Genevan Reformer, John Calvin. Extracted from his luminous Old Testament Commentaries, these fervent intercessions reveal the warm piety that accompanied this theological genius. Calvin's personal logo was an open hand, holding a heart, extended upward to God with the words, 'My heart I offer to Thee, Lord, promptly and sincerely'. This book clearly demonstrates such singular devotion to God. Here is Calvin's high doxology, arising upward from his high theology. And here is his exaltation of God, ascending from sound exegesis and exposition. By reading these prayers, I have no doubt but that your own heart will be likewise inflamed. --Steven J. Lawson, author of The Expository Genius of John Calvin
