Commentaries on the Catholic Epistles

by John Calvin

Summary

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.
