John Calvin

Publisher: Baker Books (Reprinted in 1999)

Charles H. Spurgeon said, "Among all those who have been born of women, there has not risen a greater than John Calvin; no age before him ever produced his equal, and no age afterwards has seen his rival. He propounded truth more clearly than any other man who ever breathed, knew more of Scripture, and explained it more clearly."

Benjamin B. Warfield said, "Here we have the secret of Calvin's greatness and the source of his strength unveiled to us. No man ever had a profounder sense of God than he; no man ever more unreservedly surrended himself to the Divine direction."

John Murray wrote, "Calvin was the exegete of the Reformation and in the first rank of biblical exegetes of all time."

James Montgomery Boice said, "Calvin had no weapon but the Bible. He preached from the Bible every day, and under the power of that preaching the city began to be transformed. As the people of Geneva acquired knowledge of God's Word and were changed by it, the city became, as John Knox called it later, a New Jerusalem from which the gospel spread to the rest of Europe, England, and the New World."

Additional Information


"It would not be possible for me too earnestly to press upon you the importance of reading the expositions of that prince among men, JOHN CALVIN. I am afraid that scant purses may debar you from their purchase, but if it be possible procure them... You will find the twenty-two goodly volumes worth their weight in gold. Of all the commentators I believe John Calvin to be the most candid... He was no trimmer and pruner of texts. He gave their meaning as far as he knew it... He labored to declare not his own mind upon the Spirit's words, but the mind of the Spirit as couched in those words."

—C.H. Spurgeon

"'I know no man since the apostle's days, whom I value and honor more than Calvin, and whose judgment in all things, one with another, I more esteem and come nearer to."

—Richard Baxter

"Next to the perusal of the Scriptures, which I earnestly inculcate, I exhort my pupils to peruse CALVIN'S COMMENTARIES; for I affirm that he excels beyond comparison in the interpretation of Scripture, and that his commentaries ought to be more highly valued than all that is handed down to us by the Library of the Fathers; so that I acknowkledge him to have possessed above most others, or rather above all other men, what may rightly be called an eminent gift of prophecy."

—Jacob Arminius
