About the Author
Francis Turretin (1623–87) has been called "the best expounder of the doctrine of the Reformed Church” (Samuel Alexander), “a marvelous synthesizer” (Roger Nicole), and “a towering figure among the Genevan Reformers (Leon Morris). His Institutio Theologiae Elencticae, first published In 1679–85, was the fruit of some thirty years’ teaching at the Academy of Geneva.
Most Helpful Customer Reviews
The magnum opus of one of Reformed Theology's best minds. A wonderful work set up in question answer format. However, Turretin is very polemical and interacts a great deal with the issues of his day (Socinians, Anabaptists, Roman Catholics, et al). While there is some value in this, many modern readers will have little use for it. Great binding with a modern typeset and layout. Well worth your money!
Great systematic theology. As good as Calvin's Institutes of the Christian Religion.
