Calvin's first commentary,
Commentary on Romans is an impressive commentary,
containing some of Calvin's most important views. Calvin
is regarded as one of the Reformation's best interpreters
of scripture. He frequently offers his own translations of a passage,
explaining the subtleties and nuances of his translation. He has a
penchant for incorporating keen pastoral insight into the text as well.
He always interacts with other theologians, commentators, and portions
of the Bible when interpreting a particular passage. Further, this
volume also contains informative notes from the editor. Commentary on
Romans should not be ignored by anyone interested in the book of
or John Calvin himself.
