Quotes from this entry include: Moreover, he thus takes away from them every pretext for ignorance, since, with so much light, they cannot err, except by willfully blinding themselves, or shutting their eyes.
Whence, also, we gather, how impious are the babblings of the Papists that the Scripture is beset by thick darkness, and how wicked is their driving away the people from approaching it, as if it were some labyrinth. We were not then in existence, and there was no merit of ours. The cause of our salvation did not proceed from us, but from God alone. False then is the dogma, and contrary to God's word, -- that God elects or rejects, as he foresees each to be worthy or unworthy of his favor.
Of course Calvin's commentaries are great.
The Harmony of the Gospels (Latin: De consensu evangeliorum) is a book by the Start reading The Harmony of the Gospels (With Active Table of Contents) on. The Harmony of the Gospels (With Active Table of Contents) and millions of other . In this book Augustine undertakes an orderly examination of the Gospel.
But this edition by Amazon Digital Services is not. As others have noted, the links in the Table of Contents don't always work, and the edition does not index, so that means it's not searchable. Suppose you want to see his commentary on the Gospel of John. Then you get to another TOC, and you click on the link to read his commentary on John 1: That happens with a lot of the links. And I don't have a hard copy of Calvin's Commentaries so I don't know how it's formatted, but if I want to read his commentaries on Deuteronomy I would prefer to have the commentary right after the verse, but no.
So you might have to page back and forth a few times to see the verse he's commenting on. Actually what I thought I was getting was just the commentary. I already have a Bible. But the verses from the Bible are included as well. If you just want to read his commentary from front to back, including all the verses in English and in Latin, it will work fine for you. But if you want to use it as a reference book to refer to when you have a question or just to read his thoughts on a particular passage, it's really not workable.
So a waste of 99 cents or whatever I paid for it. You are considering purchasing 22 volumes of commentary from one of the greatest minds in the last half a millennium. This is worth it. The content itself needs no introduction. Calvin's commentaries are pastoral and detailed. He writes to the layman, and not to the scholar although the scholar can certainly learn from him. His intention was always to help his church grow and love their Lord more and more through saturation in the Word. The format as an ebook was done as quite well. The TOC is clear, click on a book, and then click on a section.
You'll find what you're looking for within 15 seconds. My only nit-picky issue with the book is that the formatter didn't use named expressions. This means instead of getting an "em-dash" we get two hyphens Same with non-curly quotes. But, to be perfectly honest, if I had to work through 22 volumes of text, I would be seriously tempted to not take the time to re-write all of that either. This is totally worth you money, and John Calvin is worth your time. The ebook is very very good and the formatter should be commended. I bought and downloaded this to my iPhone, and accessed it through my Kindle app, and some of the in-text hyperlinks are defective.
For example, I go to Calvin's Isaiah commentary, and the hyperlink for chapter 53 takes me to something in the Psalms. I've not done a comprehensive survey, but I've found multiple examples of this sort of thing. This is particulalry problematic with a work this massive, since the hyperlinks are crucial for getting to where you want to go. If you have not had this problem on an iPhone with the Kindle app , feel free to dislike my review; it's not my intention to keep people away from this work - just a heads up.
TOC is a mess. Use BibleHub or buy a different Kindle book! The TOC is messed up. After struggling mightily with this for hours, I found BibleHub site has this for free. Christian Classic Etheral Library site has it too if you like this Note that this is in old English so even though they are supposed to be great, it's still tough to read. Someday someone will make a modern English translator from Old English.

Mar 31, Tom rated it really liked it Shelves: One of the first real attempts to harmonize different aspects of the Gospels, Augustine painstakingly goes almost word for word thru the Gospels and, for the most part, shows what are perceived discrepancies are really different wordings or different perspectives.

It's not really a harmonization in the modern sense, it's more like a commentary attempting to resolve the various differences between the gospels.
While most of the book still holds up too, not all of his explanations are valid. Even so, a good challenge for the casual reader of theology. It is especially helpful to know issues raised by others and to acknowledge the challenge to reconciling.
