The fruit of a lifetime of study and practical reflection, Calvin�s Institutes of the Christian Religion was a milestone of Protestant thought in its time, and has continued to be very influential for over 450 years. Deploying a synthesis of Biblical, theological, and classical thought, the Institutes argue forcefully for the scriptural basis of the Reformation, as well as establishing practical guidelines for developing a biblical worldview touching all aspects of life. In doing so, Calvin developed a vast introduction to the Bible that, in many respects, transcends time and place. Many of the issues Calvin addressed were timeless and universal, and this is the reason for the work�s longevity. This new edition of Calvin�s Institutes, adapted from Beveridge�s seminal translation, employs contemporary language and updated Biblical references � making it accessible to students, scholars, and anyone interested in Biblical studies or historic theology. Calvin�s Institutes of the Christian Religion is an essential addition to any library of Biblical studies.
