Tim Prussic5 Stars Out Of 5February 2, 2006Tim PrussicTurretin is largely unknown even in popular Reformed circles, but he deserves our attention. This work in particular was influential throughout Europe and also in American Presbyterianism via Princeton Seminary.Turretin organized his Institutes into 20 topics (loci) that range from "Prolegomena" (that is, very necessary introductory considerations) to "The Last Things." Each topic (locus) is organized by specific questions. For example, locus 20 is divided into 13 questions. Question 2 reads, "Are the same bodies numerically which have died to be raised again? We affirm against the Socinians." Turretin raised this particual question because he wanted to defend the biblical doctrine of the bodily resurrection from an error that was being taught in his day. Turretin's theology is indeed elenctic (that is, polemic or argumentitive), for a great portion of his Institutes is written against the Roman Catholics, Arminians, Socinians, Anabaptists, and others. Turretin's Institutes is not merely a negative work (exposing the errors of unbiblical doctrine), but is positive. He builds up and defends biblical doctrine in every locus.This edition: Dr. Dennison has done a wonderful work! Well indexed and edited all in a hearty binding that will last.This translation: Giger's mind-ninteenth century translation is a bit bulky and can be a bit difficult at times, but is still workable.
