John 11-21 and 1 John: Torrance Edition
This volume contains John Calvin's commentary on chapters 11-21 of the Gospel of John and the First Epistle of John. Calvin, theologian par excellence of the Reformation, laid the foundation for all later Proestent exegesis of the Bible. Marked by an honest, careful handling of the text, Calvin's expositions of Scripture remain as modern as ever in their relevance to today's student.
