More Resources for Calvin 500

Some of you may have already seen notices of the new set of Calvin's Commentaries to be released by Baker Publishing. They should be available very soon, and you can purchase them from one of the following site:Remember, that Banner of Truth is still offering a great discount on a seven-volume set of Calvin's Tracts and Letters. See here for details.

Crossway has recently released a new biography of Calvin by Robert Godfrey: John Calvin: Pilgrim and Pastor.

I also recommend Herman J. Selderhuis' John Calvin: A Pilgrim's Life (IVP, 2009) which is excellent and well documented.

I have not purchased a copy of Ligonier Ministries' John Calvin: A Heart for Devotion, Doctrine and Doxology, but it also appears to be a superb collection of essays.

Finally, I wanted to note (for those of you who prefer snuggling up at a hard desk with a keyboard :)), Logos has announced a new collection in celebration of the 500th anniversary of John Calvin: The Calvin 500 Collection (97 volumes).

This massive collection contains:
  • 45 volumes of commentaries
  • 5 editions of the Institutes of the Christian Religion in 3 languages, including the original 1559 Latin edition and the rare Norton translation
  • 4 volumes of Calvin's letters and correspondence
  • 35 theological tracts and treatises in 8 volumes
  • 10 biographies of Calvin
  • 20 volumes of secondary literature on the history of Calvinism
  • 2 volumes on Calvin from the Library of Christian Classics
  • and much more!
For those of you who already own Calvin's Comemntaries, Logos is offering an Upgrade.

Check these out. Also, I'd like to hear your recommendations, too. Leave a comment.
