Jonah and Nahum brought covenant lawsuits against Nineveh/Assyria. Nineveh accepted Jonah’s message and repented. The result: positive national sanctions. Nahum came over a century later.

Online: Calvin’s Lost Sermons on Deuteronomy

Written by Gary North on February 23, 2015

John Calvin preached 200 sermons on Deuteronomy. They have been dropped down the memory hole. Calvinist seminary professors have never heard of them, let alone read them. Until today, they had an excuse. Not any longer. In 1583, a translation of them appeared in English. This was ignored, then forgotten. Over four centuries later (1987), […]

It was not supposed to happen, according to Karl Marx. Religion is spreading fast in the not-quite-Communist paradise. Evangelical Protestantism is on the cutting edge. There were maybe a million Protestants in China in 1976. It is estimated that there are 100 million today. But no one knows. They are operating in the shadows. They […]

A Few Pastors Preach Partisan Politics, but IRS Stays Silent

Written by Gary North on November 4, 2014
