As a Christian we all should have John Calvin's Institutes in our library, or at least have read through it at least once. This thought provoking book makes you go back into scripture and helps understand some of the deeper issues in scripture. The Henry Beveridge translation is a good one, simple yet still exciting for the academic reader or casual reader who wants to get deeper into theological studies.
This book is one of those books where, if you love reading and love books, you appreciate the quality of the paper, the solid binding of the pages together, the print used and the content. A great resource of the mind and thinking of John Calvin, placed in a very well done book.
for this big of a book it never gets boring and really I am not just saying that. Calvin somehow takes a stale subject like systematic theology and makes it loads of fun. this is also a very serious subject............
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.
