Through exploring in turn the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit, Calvin's Institutes sought to achieve a "knowledge of ourselves" in light of "knowledge of God". This work, foundational to theological thought for five centuries, is presented here in a faithfully edited version - perfect for enriching Bible Studies or devotionals.
John Calvin (1509-1564) was a theological giant of the Protestant Reformation. A contemporary of Luther, he had as much influence over this period of history as his German counterpart. His writings are still cherished and relevant today.
Christian Focus is to be commended for publishing a clear, concise and comprehensive compendium of John Calvin's classic, The Institutes of the Christian religion. Systematic, biblical theology is presented in an accessible and appealing format. Using the ESV Bible text, this book is both illuminative and informative. This little paperback is a must-read for every Christian. It will make an invaluable teaching aid for church leaders and is highly recommended.
John Calvin's Institutes of the Christian Religion stands like a majestic castle in the history of the Protestant Reformed tradition. Many Christians, intimidated by its size and scope, stand outside its gates, honoring it from a distance and wondering what lies inside. Here is an opportunity to wonder no more! Read, feast and rejoice!
