The translation preserves the rugged strength and crisp prose of Calvin's writing, but also conforms to modern English while rendering heavy theological terms in simple language. The result is a translation that achieves a high degree of accuracy and at the same time is eminently readable. Often described as a difficult read, this version is very accessible and can be used for devotional purposes as well as in its more traditional mode as a magisterial theological exploration.
All previous editions of the Institutes--in Latin, French, German, and English--have been collated; references and notes have been verified, corrected, and expanded; and new bibliographies have been added. As such, the McNeil translation maintains its preeminent status among all English versions of Calvin's definitive contribution to the Christian church.
