CALVIN HIS COMMENTARIES AND WORKS

Calvin’s Commentaries and Works

 C H Spurgeon considered them of priceless value.
I have the Baker 22 volume set on my shelf and highly prize them.
It’s good to be able to turn to them and have them to hand.

Many have been the promoters of Calvin’s commentaries, but may I also add that the Sermons of Calvin when, they can be obtained, offer another aspect of the mans ‘greatness’ in the hands of God.
They show a different side to him and balance out his teachings.

 
For a lucid presentation of his theology one should turn his Institutes of Christian Religion written firstly when he was young and revised a number of times through his life and are very readable.

 
For historical value one can also read his Tracts and Letters. Put altogether he was a man greatly used of God and a man who was constantly engaged in the work of God.

No man is perfect and there are facets of him which we should avoid and were no doubt because he was ‘a child of another age’ of which many are now unfamiliar.
