“We should ask God to increase our hope when it is small, awaken it when it is dormant, confirm it when it is wavering, strengthen it when it is weak, and raise it up when it is overthrown.”

― John Calvin

 

An extremely rare, 16th-century printing of John Calvin’s commentary on the New Testament Book of Acts. Calvin wrote a number of biblical commentaries, each of which have become very popular references for hundreds of years.

 

This edition was published in Geneva by Jean Crespin, a close friend of Calvin’s. In 1548, Crespin moved so he could be near his close friend and, consequently, began publishing and printing Calvin’s works. Adams notes that his book was actually published in 1561, even though the title page states 1560.

 

This exquisite example is beautifully bound by a modern professional. Truly a remarkable piece!
