On Calvin On St. Augustine On Romans 3:21

Calvin on St. Augustine on Rom 3:21 
"It is not unknown to me, that Augustine gives a different explanation; for he thinks that the righteousness of God is the grace of regeneration; and this grace he allows to be free, because God renews us, when unworthy, by his Spirit; and from this he excludes the works of the law, that is, those works, by which men of themselves endeavor, without renovation, to render God indebted to them."

 - John Calvin, Commentary on Romans
