The navigation of this kindle version could have been better, but having said that it's relatively easy to find your way around - for the price it's a bargain! I'm no expert on Calvin, I'm still scratching the surface of his commentaries let alone works, but the more I refer to him the more impressed I am. When doing extended research on a particular passage I go through all the commentaries I have, which includes Henry, Barnes, Poole etc, and most of the time I find Calvin to be the most suggestive and inspiring.

From a time for death and persecution here is the work of a man that has never been superceded. If you can only afford one commentary this is the one to buy. Its price makes it the greatest bargain of the age.

Wow! I am 72 years of age and never thought to have owned the master's works. Now I have them: for just over £3.00 sterling. I have already begun to 'delve'. As soon as I have completed a reading of my recent,Puritan download, I shall task myself to spending the remainder of my life (pray 'tis a long one!) reading these commentaries. Can you imagine: John Own, Thomas Watson, Manton, Ryle, etc: for about £10.00 inclusive. Its an infralapsarian holiday, to be sure.
AND... my dear wife can not complain about me taking-up oodles of Bookshelves.
I have now, in addition, sufficient funds with which to purchase a few, old, black-and-white Doctor Who stories.
Addendum: I'd still prefer heaven. Calvin et al will be there, but I shall only have time for my beloved King Jesus: let those who love Him praise and glorify His lovely name.
Oops: am I blethering-?

This has to be the bargain to beat all bargains !.
Calvin's commentaries on the whole of Scripture for £3-85, I spent more than that on Easter eggs this year !.
This is well worth having, ( I am tempted to test my Pastors sermons against what Calvin has to say ).
Get it and you will not regret doing so. A superb commentary at a bargain price, not to be missed.
