Geneva Series of Commentaries - GenesisISBN: 9780851510934
Because Calvin was a sound exegete, little of what he wrote is dated. In Genesis, his treatment of the early chapters is thorough, but not disproportionate. Neither are the later narratives concerning Noah, Abraham, Isaac, Jacob and Joseph passed over hastily.
Indeed, Calvin excels in bringing out the principles of God's dealings with men, as individuals and in covenant, and in showing faithfully, yet tenderly, the human weakness and sin all too evident in Genesis.

John Calvin (1509-1564) was a theological giant of the Protestant Reformation. A contemporary of Martin Luther, he had as much influence over this period of history as his German counterpart. In 1536 he published his famous Institutes of the Christian Religion, which was a systematic presentation of the Protestant position. His writings are still cherished and relevant today.
