Fantastic read! So foundational for central truths of the christian faith. Calvin combines profound thought with a passionate love for Christ. Helpful for anyone who wants to know, obey, and love God more.
Since this was originally multiple books and its all crammed into one volume the print is amazingly small. But so far its really good read. Warning to the Baptists: has a whole chapter dedicated to the unbiblical paedo-baptism and it's "importance" etc. (for those that don't know when Michael Servetus was burned at the stake, being against paedo-baptism was one of the reasons he was burned). I'm a Calvinist only because the term is convenient to state your soteriological views but then again John Calvin never claimed to be infallible. Thought I'd check the book out since I've been called a Calvinist for so long and have read very little Calvin. So far really good read though. Heavy book.
A thousand pages later, and I've finally finished reading the most important book I've ever read. From the state of man, to the concept of wisdom, to the causes and effects of salvation, to civil government, to the separation of church and state, to the concept of prayer, to the sovereignty of God, this book blew my mind and my Christian walk will never be the same. I seriously wonder why I waited so long to read it, and I give it the highest recommendation.
A must read book. Have your Holy Bible by you to look up verus. John Calvin will help you see sin in your life in a very deep way. I have found even more love from God after reading this book and seeing my self 100% depended on God for life.
