Product Description

In the years 1536-1537, a quickly maturing John Calvin composed A Brief Outline of the Christian Faith, yet by the end of the 19th Century it had fallen out of use as a primary catechetical document and almost entirely out of existence.

At the Paris National Library in 1878 it was rediscovered and subsequently published in French and German, an English edition did not appear until 1949, and is now available in handsome imitation leather gift edition embossed with the title and Calvin's insignia.

Retitled here as Truth for All Time this little book contains what Calvin believed would be the essential truths that all Protestants must know in order for the Reformation movement to continue to grow in both numbers and quality. It is specifically tailored for everyday people-and the translation reflects this effort-and constitutes the skeleton frame of what would later become his full exposition in the Institutes of the Christian Religion. In addition to a modern translation, editors have included verse references in parenthetical form for the convenience of the reader.

This edition makes an excellent gift for all major life celebrations. But it also functions a convenient take-along book for any who wish to have a succinct version of Calvin's doctrinal teaching on hand for devotional reading or memorization. Measuring only 3.9 x 0.5 x 5.5 inches, it fits nicely into any purses, book bags, brief cases, and any other bag used to carry one's personal belongings.

    Kudos: Truth For All Time may quite simply be the best, most concise summary of the Christian faith ever written. If you've never read Calvin you may be surprised to find how easily digestible his writings are. He is no dry, musty old theologian who will bore you to tears with technical dissections of the Greek and Hebrew language. John Calvin was both a theologian and a pastor. His writings reflect the love and passion he has for God and for his people.Knocks: How much can one learn from only 77 pages? A lot, frankly. However, if you want more then I highly recommend Calvin's Institutes of the Christian Religion. As Olyatt wrote in the above quote, the Institutes is a greatly expanded version of this book, taking the form of a thoroughly comprehensive systematic theology. Its influence on Christian thinking throughout the centuries should not be under-estimated.Recommendations: Whether you are a new convert or a seasoned believer, Truth For All Time will never fail to bless. It is a beautiful reminder of both the simplicity and majesty of the redemption we have in Christ Jesus our Lord. This book would make a wonderful tract to hand out to people we witness to in our evangelism efforts. Monergism Books sells a paperback edition for only $1.50. Order 10 or 20 at a time and hand out to friends, loved ones, co-workers or strangers you meet on the streets. Catechize your children with it or study it alongside your spouse.

    This has been a great read. It's not a very large book, one day's reading.
