Calvin's Doctrine of the Word and Sacrament
by Ronald S. Wallace
This is a careful and fresh study of Calvin’s
Commentaries, Institutes, Sermons, and Tracts designed to meet the practical needs of those who wish clarification
of the doctrines which lie behind traditional Reformed church practice. The book is also valuable for the insight
it gives into Calvin’s method of interpreting Scripture, especially the Old Testament.
In the preface the following two sentences aptly
sum up the content and purpose of the work: "What is most important in the study of Calvin today is to reveal what
the Reformer himself actually said, in order that misconceptions about his teaching may be cleared away. Therefore
this work is not a critical study of Calvin but an attempt to express his teaching as copiously, fairly, and
sympathetically as possible."
