Tim Challies just posted his notes from a talk by Dr. R. Albert Mohler. The topic was the legacy of John Calvin as a preacher & teacher. Follow this link to read it for yourself: Ligonier Conference – Al Mohler
Calvin understood the majesty of preaching because he understood the majesty of God. Calvin’s mode of preaching was verse-by-verse, book-by-book so he would not selectively avoid things he did not wish to teach. In this way God’s people receive all that they need and not just what the preacher determines the people need. The preacher is neither to add nor subtract from Scripture.
