Product Description

A colossal milestone of Christian thought---at an irresistible price!

Hendrickson offers a one-volume hardcover edition of one of Western Christianity's foundational works. Newly re-typeset for clarity, this volume translated by Henry Beveridge offers a more affordable edition of one of the last millennium's must-have works. This book will appeal to libraries, seminarians, pastors, and laypeople. Institutes of the Christian Religion by John Calvin is an introduction to the Bible and a vindication of Reformation principles by one of the Reformation's finest scholars.

At the age of twenty-six, Calvin published several revisions of his Institutes of the Christian Religion, a seminal work in Christian theology that altered the course of Western history and that is still read by theological students today. It was published in Latin in 1536 and in his native French in 1541, with the definitive editions appearing in 1559 (Latin) and in 1560 (French). The book was written as an introductory textbook on the Protestant faith for those with some learning already and covered a broad range of theological topics from the doctrines of church and sacraments to justification by faith alone. It vigorously attacked the teachings of those Calvin considered unorthodox, particularly Roman Catholicism, to which Calvin says he had been "strongly devoted" before his conversion to Protestantism. The over-arching theme of the book - and Calvin's greatest theological legacy - is the idea of God's total sovereignty, particularly in salvation and election.

Author Bio

John Calvin (1509-1564) the French theologian and reformer was persecuted as a Protestant. As a result, he traveled from place to place. In 1534 at Angouleme he began the work of systematizing Protestant thought in the Institutes of the Christian Religion, one of the most influential theological works of all time.

    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............
