Sull'Autore

Born Jean Cauvin in Noyon, Picardy, France, John Calvin was only a boy when Martin Luther first raised his challenge concerning indulgences. Calvin was enrolled at the age of 14 at the University of Paris, where he received preliminary training in theology and became an elegant Latinist. However, mostra altro following the dictates of his father, he left Paris at the age of 19 and went to study law, first at Orleans, then at Bourges, in both of which centers the ideas of Luther were already creating a stir. On his father's death, Calvin returned to Paris, began to study Greek, the language of the New Testament, and decided to devote his life to scholarship. In 1532 he published a commentary on Seneca's De Clementia, but the following year, after experiencing what was considered a sudden conversion, he was forced to flee Paris for his religious views. The next year was given to the study of Hebrew in Basel and to writing the first version of his famous Institutes of the Christian Religion, which he gave to the printer in 1535. The rest of his life-except for a forced exile of three years-he spent in Geneva, where he became chief pastor, without ever being ordained. When he died, the city was solidly on his side, having almost become what one critic called a "theocracy." By then the fourth and much-revised edition of his Institutes had been published in Latin and French, commentaries had appeared on almost the whole Bible, treatises had been written on the Lord's Supper, on the Anabaptists, and on secret Protestants under persecution in France. Thousands of refugees had come to Geneva, and the city-energized by religious fervor-had found room and work for them. Though Calvin was sometimes bitter in his denunciation of those who disagreed with him, intolerant of other points of view, and absolutely sure he was right on the matter of predestination, he was nonetheless one of the great expounders of the faith. From his work the Reformed tradition had its genesis, and from his genius continues to refresh itself. (Bowker Author Biography) mostra meno

Recensioni

Outstanding little book. One of the most dense reads I've experienced in quite a while, yet still fully accessible to laymen. I would wholeheartedly recommend this to every single Christian I know and don't know.

I find Calvin's Commentaries to be excellent for personal study and reflection, a valuable source for sermon preparation~ to have my mind stimulated, enhanced clarity to my studies, meditations and reflection.
It is the coming to both the wine press, where the juice is pressed from the ripened fruit of the vine, and to the cellar where we are refreshed by the fermented and matured libation with richness in color, layers of depth, the delicious savoring, and enjoyment that which will make the heart glad and the soul refreshed, nourished and healthy.… (altro)
