John Calvin’s magnum opus, Institutes of the Christian Religion, is a seminal work of brilliance of the Protestant Reformation. While it was written as a theological introduction to the Protestant faith, Calvin faithfully argues with great incisiveness for the majesty and total sovereignty of God as revealed in Holy Scripture.
It was first published in Latin in 1536 and in the author’s native French in 1541. Henry Beveridge’s translation of the Institutes has been long considered a classic and it preserves the remarkable accessibility of Calvin’s work. The influence of Calvin’s Institutes of the Christian Religion on the Church and the western world is unmeasurable as it is still studied by many today.
In this new edition, Henry Beveridge’s classic translation of John Calvin’s Institutes of the Christian Religion has been thoughtfully updated for the modern reader and combined into a single accessible volume.
