John Calvin. A man whose teachings have created a following and theological belief system named in his honor. Many have been taken by his understanding and methodical teaching of Scripture. Many have argued against him believing him to be in error and misinterpreting the Bible.
Whatever your position. the genius and intellect that composed the mind of John Calvin cannot be easily dismissed. In his book, The Expository Genius of John Calvin, Steven J. Lawson sets forth to give the reader the brilliance that was John Calvin and how his exposition of Scripture is still some of the best in history.
What I appreciated about this were the examples of the exposition of John Calvin. The parallels he drew are deep and powerful. Such intelligence is hard to find today and needs to be pursued more in Christianity.
