Book Description

In one relatively short life, plagued by constant ill-health, John Calvin exercised a remarkable ministry as a biblical scholar, a systematic theologian, an evangelical statesman, a church reformer, an international correspondent and a local pastor. His greatest legacy, however, remains his Institutes and his commentaries and treatises.

Calvin’s Wisdom is an anthology of the reformer’s writing. But, more than that, it is virtually a dictionary of this thought, almost an encyclopedia of his theology.

A life-long labour of love, undertaken originally for personal edification, Calvin’s Wisdom is also Dr. Graham Miller’s love-gift to the church. A source of biblical and doctrinal instruction, wise counsel and faithful encouragement, it will become a much-valued companion to those who use it.
