The long-overdue republication of Robert Rollock’s “Select Works” introduces us to one of the greatest Reformed thinkers of the sixteenth century. Robert Rollock (c.1555-1598), first principal of Edinburgh University, able preacher and philosopher, and a renowned biblical commentator in his own day, was a seminal Reformed theologian particularly as an early exponent of covenant theology in Scotland. His treatises on God’s effectual calling and the passion, resurrection, and ascension of Christ are themselves worth the purchase of this two-volume “Select Works.” These volumes represent the cream of sixteenth-century Reformed theology, and should be treasured by all who love biblical truth. May they whet the appetite for more of this prolific Scotsman, who wrote five volumes of sermons and nine commentaries.
