Published first in 1536, the Institutes of the Christian Religion is John
Calvin's magnum opus. Extremely important for the Protestant Reformation, the
Institutes has remained important for Protestant theology for almost five
centuries. Written to "aid those who desire to be instructed in the doctrine of
salvation," the Institutes, which follows the ordering of the Apostle's Creed,
has four parts. The first part examines God the Father; the second part, the
Son; the third part, the Holy Spirit; and the fourth part, the Church. Through
these four parts, it explores both "knowledge of God" and "knowledge of
ourselves" with profound theological insight, challenging and informing all the
while. Thus, for either the recent convert or the long-time believer, for the
inquisitive beginner or the serious scholar, John Calvin's Institutes of the
Christian Religion is a rewarding book worthy of study!
This copy of the Institutes of the Christian Religion was translated into English by Henry Beveridge (who died in 1929) and was first published in 1845.
