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 Elenctic, first published In 1679—85, was the fruit of some thirty years' teaching at the Academy of Geneva.
If ever a great theological work has been unjustly neglected it has been Francis Turretin’s masterful volumes on the whole of Christian doctrine. . . . I heartily . . . commend [them] to preachers, theological students, and lay persons everywhere."
—James M. Boice
"The larger availability in English of Turretin’s complete Institutes is a welcome contribution . . ."
—Carl F. H. Henry
". . . a noteworthy event for the Reformed churches and for all who take an interest in the history and development of Reformed theology. . . ."
