Tab Name:

John Calvin (Middle French: Jean Cauvin; 10 July 1509 – 27 May 1564) was an influential French theologian and pastor during the Protestant Reformation. He was a principal figure in the development of the system of Christian theology later called Calvinism. Originally trained as a humanist lawyer, he broke from the Roman Catholic Church around 1530. After religious tensions provoked a violent uprising against Protestants in France, Calvin fled to Basel, Switzerland, where he published the first edition of his seminal work Institutes of the Christian Religion in 1536.

In that year, Calvin was recruited by William Farel to help reform the church in Geneva. The city council resisted the implementation of Calvin and Farel's ideas, and both men were expelled. At the invitation of Martin Bucer, Calvin proceeded to Strasbourg, where he became the minister of a church of French refugees. He continued to support the reform movement in Geneva, and was eventually invited back to lead its church.

Following his return, Calvin introduced new forms of church government and liturgy, despite the opposition of several powerful families in the city who tried to curb his authority. During this period, Michael Servetus, a Spaniard with views Calvin considered heretical and the first European to describe the function of pulmonary circulation, arrived in Geneva. He was denounced by Calvin and executed by the city council. Following an influx of supportive refugees and new elections to the city council, Calvin's opponents were forced out. Calvin spent his final years promoting the Reformation both in Geneva and throughout Europe.

Calvin was a tireless polemic and apologetic writer who generated much controversy. He also exchanged cordial and supportive letters with many reformers, including Philipp Melanchthon and Heinrich Bullinger. In addition to the Institutes, he wrote commentaries on most books of the Bible, as well as theological treatises and confessional documents. He regularly preached sermons throughout the week in Geneva. Calvin was influenced by the Augustinian tradition, which led him to expound the doctrine of predestination and the absolute sovereignty of God in salvation of the human soul from death and eternal damnation.

Calvin's writing and preachings provided the seeds for the branch of theology that bears his name. The Reformed and Presbyterian churches, which look to Calvin as a chief expositor of their beliefs, have spread throughout the world.

Love this but... why are some chapters missing?? Many chapters from the gospels ( most of mark) are not to be seen. Is this something to do with Calvin choice of doing them in a harmony? If so is there a pattern that i can use to find a chapter that is included in another place??
Here is what I've found to be in Calvin's Commentary that I have starting w/ ch.2....check it out with your own to see if yours is the same. I'm pretty sure mine is from here at biblesupport.com.

Anybody going to see if they can repair this module?

I wanted to update you guys that this commentary is 100% complete. I own this series in LOGOS and found that it has the same info. DO NOT WORRY about the missing chapters. This is how John Calvin decided to write his commentary series. This commentary is a must have...enjoy!

Great contribution, thanks

This is a really good commentary.  Up to date English words.  Much better than the newer ones.  I use it more often than others.

Thanks for all your wonderful work for us.  God Bless!!

Will this work for e sword on Mac OSX?

I need to properly cite this source for a book I am writing. Does anyone know the published source from which the module was created?

Works perfectly for me so far what a joy this is many many thanks.

It doesn't say if it is supported by version 11.0.4, but I downloaded and installed with e-Sword Module Installer and it seems to work okay.
