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), […]

Civilization and the Faculty Lounge

Written by Gary North on January 29, 2015


Ludwig von Mises is one of my heroes. He abided by a fundamental principle in life: “Never give an inch.” It was often said by Chicago School economists and other non-Austrian economists that Mises was just too hard core.

A Few Pastors Preach Partisan Politics, but IRS Stays Silent

Written by Gary North on November 4, 2014


Usually, pastors avoid political issues that do not directly affect churches. They do not want to split their churches. They want those tithes and offerings. The churches are in debt, and cash flow is a consideration. Besides, they know that Americans don’t like to be told what to do in church directly. They want only […]
