This book contains John
Calvin's excellent commentary on James, First and Second
Peter, First John, and Jude. Regarded as one of the
Reformation's best interpreters of scripture, Calvin is an apt
commentator. In particular, 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 extensive, informative notes from the editor.
After 400 years, Calvin's Commentary on the Catholic Epistles
remains instructive, engaging, and lively.
