Information on Ezekiel I from the publisher:
Through this new translation of all of John Calvin's commentaries on the Old Testament, modern readers can for the first time hear the theologian par excellence of the Reformation expounding the Hebrew Bible in clear contemporary English. Based, significantly, on the last editions for which Calvin himself was responsible, this translation effectively supersedes the nineteenth-century Calvin Translation Society version. More accessible and instructive to today's student than any other body of biblical exposition from the Reformation era, these commentaries enlarge the conventional view of Calvin the theologian by offering a revealing picture of Calvin the teacher, exegete, pastor, and person.
Description of D. Foxgrover, author of Ezekiel I:
This volume faithfully reproduces Calvin's definitive lectures on the first twelve chapters of Ezekiel. The translators have taken care to capture the lecture "feel" of Calvin's words and to preserve Calvin's literalistic translation of the Hebrew text. This commentary contains the finest exposition of God's prophetic word available, and the prayers that follow each chapter also deserve special attention both as superb spiritual models as valuable glimpses into Calvin's inner life.
