Quoted in Kenton L. Sparks, God’s Word in Human Words: An Evangelical Appropriation of Critical Biblical Scholarship (Grand Rapids: Baker Books, 2008), p. 256. In his Commentary on Genesis, Calvin argues that because of its duty to teach the uneducated, Scripture conforms to “the capacity of the vulgar” and “insists on the rudiments suitable to children” (comments at Genesis 2:8 and 3:1). He regards the sciences (like astronomy) as useful and correct, but “generally unknown [to] the uneducated” (comment at Genesis 1:16).
