Reliable source of information.
Calvin's gift to every generation comes from his background in academics as a lawyer. This insight allowed for him to be meticulous in his investigation for the context in the original languages of the Holy Writes. Even an argumentative contender of Calvin's theological thoughts such as Arminius stated about Calvin's commentary "I affirm that he excels beyond comparison in the interpretation of Scripture, and that his commentaries ought to be more highly valued than all that is handed down to us by the Library of the Fathers; so that I acknowledge him to have possessed above most others, or rather above all other men, what may be called an eminent gift of prophecy" Now, the app could always utilize some betterment and more organizational process to have a verse by verse experience of a Bible verse and a Calvin's commentary. But other than an organizational improvement needed it is an excellent app.
Thank you and good but can be better
I thank the individual(s) who created this app and made it available for us in the open market. My review is this; the books to which Calvin gives commentary to are incredibly easy to navigate to but not through. I think this app would be made perfect if instead of having to scroll down through the text to find the commentary, a link in the text relevant to the commentary could be clicked on and I be taken right to the commentary. Then vice versa to return to my text of which I can easily pick back up and then replicate this process as I read. Thank you again.
The Information Age bringing glory to God
We are blessed to live in a day where so many resources are easily available to us. Technology has spread false teaching but I think it has done more to put solid biblical teaching in the hands of those who are seeking for it. John Calvin's commentary of the Bible has been a tool that has encourage me and strengthened my faith. It is interesting to read his expositions, that were written nearly 500 years ago, and to see that the church was dealing with issues then that seem relevant today.
