This is volume 11 - Galatians, Ephesians, Philippians, and Colossians.These classic commentaries by Calvin laid the basis for later scholarly exegesis of the Bible. The commentary is verse-by-verse, with anywhere from a paragraph to a whole page of commentary per verse. This is a completely new translation into modern English of Calvin's Commentaries on the New Testament. Those familiar with previous translations have frequently discovered that these previous translations sometimes fail to reveal the close coherence of Calvin's ideas, miss many of his characteristic images, and often translate whole passages poorly or omit them altogether.^

John Calvin, born in 1509 and designated for the Catholic priesthood by his father, became the great French Protestant reformer famous for his doctrine of predestination and his theocratic view of the state. In Geneva, he rejected Papal authority, established a new scheme of civic and ecclesiastical governance, and created a central hub from which Reformed theology was propagated. He engaged in long bitter struggles over the independence of the Church from the State and the rules he tried to impose on Geneva as a whole. The Institutes of the Christian Religion, one of the most famous theological books ever published established Calvin's system of doctrine and Church which has shaped more minds and entered into more nations than that of any other reformer. When he died in Geneva in 1564, he left both a city and a world transformed by the impact of his ideas and beliefs. - Publisher.
