Commentary on the Psalms: Abridged
1 in stock
John Calvin was a practical and pastoral theologian. Like the Apostle Paul he worked tirelessly 'for the sake of the faith of God's elect and their knowledge of the truth, which accords with godliness' (Titus 1:1). For him knowledge of the truth was for living, and living was for the glory of God.
This book is an abridgement of Calvin's commentary on the Psalms, reducing it to about one quarter of its original size. It is the result of a labour of love undertaken by one who has for some years used Calvin on the Psalms in his devotional reading of Scripture, and who has grown to appreciate Calvin's method of exposition, his faithfulness to the biblical text and his practical application of the truth to daily living.
This abridgement is not intended to deprive readers of the full benefit of Calvin's unabridged text, but to edify those who otherwise might remain strangers to Calvin's practical and pastoral wisdom. Here, then, is a treasure chest containing a choice selection of the wonderful riches to be found in Calvin's commentary on the Psalms.
