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.
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.
