Commentaries

Calvin's Commentaries (46 vols.)

Calvin’s Commentaries are, in the words of Philip Schaff, one of the few exegetical works that have outlived their generation. Calvin preached and wrote prolifically on the Bible. His commentaries display a rare combination of exegetical insight, pastoral concern, and theological depth and have inspired generations of Christians. Calvin wrote commentaries on most books of the Bible, and he is best known for his commentaries on the Pauline epistles, his harmony of the Gospels, and his 5-volume work on the Psalms—all included in this massive collection.

Calvin was an exegetical genius of the first order. His commentaries are unsurpassed for originality, depth, perspicuity, soundness and permanent value. He combined in a very rare degree all the essential qualities of an exegete—grammatical knowledge, spiritual insight, acute perception, sound judgment, and practical tact.

—Philip Schaff

Logos is pleased to offer the edition of Calvin’s commentaries produced by the Calvin Translation Society and published in 45 volumes. This is the same edition which underlies the standard 1979 Baker reprint edition (though they printed it as 22 volumes), and is the standard scholarly edition used for research and citations in the English-speaking world.

Benefits of the Logos Bible Software Edition

In Logos, every word is essentially a link, which means that clicking on any Greek or Hebrew word automatically searches the lexicons in your library for the exact definition—instantly. All Scripture references instantly display on mouseover, and are turned into hyperlinks to the original language texts and your preferred English Bible translations in your library. The advanced search functionality from Logos also allows you to search Calvin’s Commentaries by topic and by passage, making this edition more useful than ever for sermon preparation, teaching, and classroom use.

What’s more, Calvin’s Commentaries will be automatically added to your Passage Guide report. Here’s how it works. Whenever you run Passage Guides, Logos pulls each commentary you own off the shelf and opens each one to the page where your passage is discussed. So right away you have instant (one-click) access to the page and paragraph in each commentary that’s relevant to your study. This allows you to find exactly what you’re looking for, and to read Calvin’s Commentaries in the context of the other commentaries in your library. No other digital edition of Calvin’s Commentaries gives you the advanced tools in Logos Bible Software.
