Product Description

A master Calvin scholar, Parker guides you through all of Calvin's Old Testament expositions in this eminently readable work. His theological insights and extensive quotations help you hear Calvin in refreshingly new ways. He begins by describing the composition and delivery of Calvin's commentaries, lectures, and sermons. He then explains Calvin's view on the relationship between the Old and New Testaments, and discusses the presence of Christ in the Old Testament. The different ways in which Calvin expounded the legal, historical, and prophetic aspects of the Old Testament conclude the volume. 248 pages, paper from Westminster.

Publisher's Description

Calvin had always been regarded as one of the greatest biblical commentators in the history of the church. Now again available is this complete study of his Old Testament expositions--both written commentaries and lectures transcribed verbatim. The book begins by describing the composition and delivery of the expositions, as well as Calvin's preaching on the Old Testament. An explanation and discussion of Calvin's view on the relationship between the two testaments and on the presence of Christ in the Old Testament follows. The volume concludes by showing how Calvin expounded the Old Testament: its history and narrative, the Law of moral imperative and ceremonial, and the Prophets in regard to both proclamation and apocalyptic.
