John Calvin was not accustomed to writing personal, autobiographical information about himself. Calvin is known through his theological writings. Nothing can substitute reading his Institutes on Christian Religion to truly understand who Calvin was and what he thought, but this collection of selections from his biblical commentaries is a helpful addition to more of his writings. This volume contains selections from Calvin's writings on the Bible, Jesus Christ, Faith, Providence, Election and Predestination, and The Church. This collection is a great addition to what can be known about John Calvin.
