Among Reformed Theologians of the world, both present and past, Francis Turretin’s Institutio fairs among the greatest Protestant theological works ever written. And if more disciples of Jesus Christ were to pick this work up and read it, then live it, the church would be a force to be reckoned with in this 21st century.
Why did Jesus Christ die on the cross? Throughout Church history one will find many different answers. The right answer is critical to salvation and entering into a right relationship with Jesus Christ. This current volume is a masterful biblical survey and polemic that illuminates the Bible’s doctrine of Christ’s atonement. It is doubted whether any other work of the same compass presents so clearly and forcibly the truth of God as to the Nature, Truth, Perfection, Matter, and Extent of the Satisfaction made by the our Savior. Turretin’s lucid arrangement of topics, compact argumentation, fairness of statement, and constant appeal to the law and the testimony, leave the careful reader little to desire. It had been said that Turretin is the best expounder of doctrine that the Reformed church has ever known, and this work on the atonement is an example of his exegetical, logical and practical insight into the work of our Lord’s life and sacrifice.
Included in this second edition is a work by C. Matthew McMahon on Turretin’s “covenant” concepts. One cannot understand Turretin’s atonement without joining that to his covenant theology.
