Excerpt
Introduction: By The Rev. John Murray, M.A., Th.M. - The publication in English of another edition of the opus magnum of Christian theology is an event fraught with much encouragement. Notwithstanding the decadence so patent in our present-day world and particularly in the realm of Christian thought and life, the publishers have confidence that there is sufficient interest to warrant such an undertaking. If this faith is justified we have reason for thanksgiving to God. For what would be a better harbinger of another Reformation than widespread recourse to the earnest and sober study of the Word of God which would be evinced by the readiness carefully to peruse The Institutes of the Christian Religion. Dr. B. B. Warfield in his admirable article, ?On the Literary History of the Institutes,? has condensed for us the appraisal accorded Calvin?s work by the critics who have been most competent to judge. Among these tributes none expresses more adequately, and none with comparable terseness, the appraisal which is Calvin?s due than that of the learned Joseph Scaliger, ?Solus inter theologos Calvinus.?
