Institutes of the Christian Religion is John Calvin’s seminal work on Protestant systematic theology. Highly influential in the Western world and still widely read by theological students today, it was published in Latin in 1536 and in his native French in 1541. The book serves as an introductory textbook on the Protestant faith for those with some previous knowledge of theology and covers a broad range of theological topics from the doctrines of church and sacraments to justification by faith alone and Christian liberty. It vigorously attacks teachings which Calvin considered unorthodox, particularly Roman Catholicism to which Calvin says he had been “strongly devoted” before his conversion to Protestantism. The overarching theme of the book—and Calvin’s greatest theological legacy—is the idea of God’s total sovereignty, particularly in salvation and election. Institutes of the Christian Religion is highly-regarded as a secondary reference for the system of doctrine adopted by the Reformed churches, which is commonly referred to as Calvinism.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“One of most important theological works ever written, if, for no other reason, the massive influence it has had on Western thought, history, religion, and culture. But even more than that, you will find in this book a vision of God that is not only glorious and holy, but beautiful, gracious, and full of love.” Derek Brown, editor of The Journal of Discipleship and Family Ministry

Amazing

I never dreamed someone would read this classic work so well. What a blessing.

Thank you for your helpful review. I was wondering, however, whether you really meant to give this audiobook a one-star rating. Your review was highly complimentary and mentioned no "cons" for the book or the reading.

The height and depth of Christian theology.

This is a phenomenal work with a phenomenal reader.
I never dreamed that this would be available as an audio book, or that the reading would be of this quality. This was not a work for a faint hearted narrator, it is a difficult collegiate text with a difficult vernacular, that the reader handled masterfully. The reading is unsurpassable. A must read for any serious student of theology.
