John Calvin's Exegesis of the Old Testament

Columbia Series in Reformed Theology
  • By David Puckett
John Calvin’s reading of the Old Testament was a departure from that of many of his contemporaries.  He rejected much of the traditional Christian exegesis of the Old Testament that attempted to explain the Old Testament in terms of the New Testament revelation of Christ.  He also rejected much of the traditional Jewish exegesis of the Old Testament that favored a more so-called historical approach to the writings.  Instead, he offered a middle way to interpret the Old Testament scripture with respect to both traditions.  David Puckett examines this often-neglected area of study of John Calvin’s exegetical reasoning in this comprehensive and fascinating analysis. 

For anyone who wishes to understand the historical tensions that existed in Calvin’s time with regard to the interpretation of scripture, this book will be of great value.  For those who wish to understand Calvin’s actual method of exegetical reasoning, a largely unmined source of information that reveals what he most valued as an exegete, this book will be invaluable.
