This is the definitive English-language edition of one of the monumental works of the Christian church. All previous editions–in Latin, French, German, and English–have been collated; references and notes have been verified, corrected, and expanded; and new bibliographies have been added.The translation preserves the rugged strength and vividness of Calvin’s writing, but also conforms to modern English and renders 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.

Long recognized for the quality of its translations, introductions, explanatory notes, and indexes, the Library of Christian Classics provides scholars and students with modern English translations of some of the most significant Christian theological texts in history. Through these works–each written prior to the end of the sixteenth century–contemporary readers are able to engage the ideas that have shaped Christian theology and the church through the centuries.

And it should be added that Calvin is relentlessly biblical. There is no point in his theology…

The most important work on Reformed Theology I have read The is arguably the single most important work on Reformed Theology available, yet I have encountered few who have read it.

This is not a quick read, but it is as important as any other writing outside the Holy Scripture.I checked 4 stars for the content. This Kindle version was not very serviceable. Amazon has apparently recognized this and is stopping further sales until it is fixed by the…
