FREE EBOOK ✓ EPUB Calvin Institutes of the Christian Religion ä Institutes of the Christian Religion Þ JOHN CALVIN ↠ ☉ [PDF / Epub] ☆ Calvin: Institutes of the Christian Religion (2 Volume Set) By John Calvin ❤ RThis 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 addedThe translation preserves the rugged strength and vividness This is Calvin's benchmark text of Reformed theology Calvin is one of the magisterial giants on which the Reformation of the Christian church stands and this work makes the reasons for his stature abundantly clear Trained as a lawyer before becoming a pastor and theologian Calvin is logical thorough and relentless in pressing his viewpoints on every aspect of faith addressed in this volume And it should be added that Calvin is relentlessly biblical There is no point in his theology that is not thoroughly grounded in scripture He writes as one who is also well acuainted with the church fathers as well as the theologians of his day drawing deeply from that well of knowledge in both building up his position and refuting the positions that he believes are held in error I read the Battles translation and the style of Calvin's writing comes across as very readable and accessible not just to pastors theologians and educated lay persons but to anyone who wants to understand Christian doctrine that is firmly Biblical which in a nutshell is what Reformed theology is all about I highly commend this enduring work It is truly a timeless gift to the church

READER à Institutes of the Christian Religion ☆ John Calvin

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 centurie I ordered this a couple months ago and was excited to get into reading it once I finished another big theology book that I had been working throughI started reading volume 1 over the past week and noticed some footnotes referencing chapters in the second volume So I went to reach for my second volume and to my utter surprise I found myself flipping through an EXACT replica of volume one Everything down to the page breaks the number of pages the dots on the i's are exaclty the same as volume 1 in the so called volume 2 The ONLY difference is that the cover for the second volume 1 says volume 2 on it's cover albeit deceptively and erroneouslyI would like to get the proper volume 2 at some point but seeing as I didn't get to the second half of an over 1000 page 2 volume systematic theology within the short return window for it seems I'm stuck with a sort of testament to 's failure to check product uality rather than the full 2 volumes of Calvin's excellent workIf there is anyone out there with two volume 2s and would like to do a sort of exchange then please do get in touch

John Calvin ☆ 2 Volume Set BOOK

Calvin Institutes of the Christian Religion 2 Volume SetOf 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 readableLong recognized for the uality of its translations introductions explanatory notes and indexes the Library of Christian It would have been a good deal to get both volumes what was advertised at 1649 They advertised both volumes for that price and that is why I chose this vendor rather than another They are some kind of charity related organization so I don't want to be too harsh I don't even want to insinuate that it was in any way deliberate but it was careless However I got a decent book for the price but I had to order volume 1 for about 2500 I think it is important to have an accurate description of what is being sold
