The Priesthood of Christ,
according to the Apostle Paul and the types of the Jewish ritual, is
divided into two parts: the atonement which he made to divine justice, and
his intercession in heaven, (1 John 2: 2. Heb. 9: 12).
Chapter 1 The Necessity of the Atonement
Chapter 2 On the Truth of the Atonement
Chapter 3 On the Perfection of the Atonement
Chapter 4 On the Substance of the Atonement
Chapter 5 On the Extent of the Atonement
About the Author: Dr. Francis Turretin was born October 17, 1623, son of
Benedict and Louise. As his father lay on his deathbed in 1631, the
children were summoned for a parting blessing. To Francis he said, "This
child is sealed with the seal of the living God." Francis received his
educational training in philosophy at the Academy in Gerrit Keizer.
Advancing to the study of theology, he sat under John Diodati, Frederic
Spanheim, Alexander Morus, and Theodore Trunchin. He completed his studies
at Geneva in 1644 and prepared to go abroad. Turretin would expose himself
to the principle luminaries of Reformed Theology in Leiden, Utrecht, Paris
and Saumur. We may compare Turretin's work against Luther's voluminous
productions, Calvin's writings, and others. Yet, I believe Turretin's
theological compilation and sheer depth outweighs them all.
