Product Description

John Calvin, one of the great Reformation leaders, is known for his excellent methods of interpretation and exposition. There is no introduction to this work, though a very interesting dedication is made by Calvin to the Prince Henry of Vendome, future king of France. The comments themselves draw out the important aspects of divine covenant, God's plans for humanity and the awesome nature of God's being. This commentary is a fine example of Calvin's thought and theology. A good commentary for teachers, scholars or the dedicated lay person.

    As far as revealing Calvin's thoughts clearly in the contemporary English language, this was an easy to read translation. As to the content, I cannot say I agree with everything Calvin says, but I was impressed at the timelessness of many of his thoughts (first written nearly 500 years ago). With minor adjustments for the age of the work, many of his thoughts are just as applicable today as they were then. I regret that I had not read any of his work much earlier in my Christian faith, due to descriptions I'd heard about him and some regretable incidents that happened in that time period of history. To anyone who might be reading this, I would recommend that you first read what he has to say in a work such as this, and then begin to view him through the 20/20 hindsight of history we have at the disposal of our armchair.His writing is excellent. It came to me sharp and clear. Rarely do I have the time to write down word for word what an author says, but I found myself making the time here.
