The Decades of Henry Bullinger: Fourth Decade includes 10 godly and learned sermons containing the chief and principal points of the Christian Religion. The Decades are meant to encourage, uplift and inspire ministers to uphold their high calling of preaching God’s word. Bullinger implores, “But let the ministers of our time well weigh the condition and manner of the time; and then, no doubt, they shall see that it is high time to bestir them to the doing of their duties.” He provides careful admonishment for shepherds to guard their flocks against the enemy and stand vigilant to promote truth and godliness.

About Henry Bullinger
Heinrich (Henry) Bullinger (1504–1575) was a Swiss Reformer who succeeded Zwingli as head of the Swiss church and was one of the most influential theologians of the Protestant Reformation. He was a minister, theologian and writer of thousands of letters in correspondence with prominent leaders of the Protestant world. He was integral in drafting the Second Helvetic Confession of 1566, and his Decades remain his most popular and significant writings. Bullinger was a loving family man, dedicated to his wife, Anna Adlischweiler, a former nun, and his eleven children—all of his sons followed their father’s footsteps and became Protestant ministers.
