After experiencing some church difficulties, I thought I needed to make sure that my theology was not the problem. So, being a Protestant, I looked to history for guidance and settled on Calvin because of his contributions to Protestantism. I took a couple of years and read Calvin's Commentaries as a personal devotion. I have never been the same and heartily recommend Calvin to all Christians.

Not only does reading Calvin provide an education in Christianity, but the quality of his language provi

Come read commentaries written by one of the greatest exegetes of the Reformation! His clarity, orthodoxy, and love for the Lord all make these a great addition to any library!

I don't know if it is fair to say that one has actually "read" Calvin's Commentaries (22 volumes!). However I think it safe to say that I have extensively referenced these commentaries - the crown jewel of commentaries - many times over the past 30 years. John Calvin's Biblical wisdom and sagacity are to be compared to none, in my humble opinion. The church of Christ has certainly been blessed by these works over the centuries.

We are reading through the harmony of the evangelists at present. Very readable; very edifying.

Calvin is excellent. Really. A more thoughtful, careful, pastoral commentary cannot be found.

My "go-to" commentary. I'm rarely disappointed when reading an entry, although sometimes the sections are hard to find--especially the volumes where multiple books are harmonized.

The depth of his understanding of the Scriptures was phenomenal! I use this set regularly in my sermon preparation.
