Reviews - What do customers think about Calvin's Doctrine of the Word and Sacrament?

Calvin on the Word and Sacraments, Exposed  Feb 10, 2007
This 253 page text is the fruit of Ronald S. Wallace's preparation of two papers for the Scottish Church Theological Society, one on Calvin's doctrine of Scripture and the other on Calvin's doctrine of the Lord's Supper. During the course of his study, Wallace determines that Calvin's doctrine in the area of Scripture and the Sacraments are closely related (indeed they contextualize each other) and subsequently must be understood in light of Calvin's view of Christ's revelation in the Word and by sign. In this, Wallace excels, continually reinforcing these themes with Calvin's own words. I am always dubious of one author's attempt to tell me what another author is saying (somewhat ironic to state in a book review, I grant), yet Wallace is as brilliant as he is faithful in his handling of Calvin.

If you have only read Calvin's Institutes, then there is much to gain from this text. Most quoted material is drawn for Calvin's commentaries, with additional material from Institutes and Calvin's sermons and other materials. This puts a wealth of Calvin's material on the topics of Scripture, Baptism, the Lord's Supper, and Revelation into the hands of the reader. It is not a critical text, however, but an attempt to clearly and faithfully express Calvin's doctrines. The in-text quotes are in English, but much of the footnotes are in Latin.

The binding is of course paper. It withstood its first reading well, in terms of wear, but the cover is much closer to my kitchen floor linoleum than what a book cover should be, and will permanently take on any bending or folding. The interior text is dense but easily readable.
It is a wonderful book of calvin's doctrine.  Apr 18, 2000
I'm a student in theological master course of presbyterian seminary(PCTS-in Seoul, Korea). During the study of History of preaching, specifically Calvin' preaching, I'm introduced this book by my professor ChangBok Chung. This book has the abundunt qoutation of calvin's original sources. This point is very good point.
