Book Title: Institutes of the Christian Religion

Author: John Calvin (Author), Henry Beveridge (Translator)

Book Description:

I've read John Calvin's abridged version of his 1536's classic "Institutes of the Christian Religion" translated by Grace Publications Trust in 1982. I've always wanted to read a complete version of it. That's why I selected this book.

Calvin's assertion in chapter one inspires me to think about myself and the One who created me. "If we wish to have real wisdom, we must know two things: we must know God and we must know ourselves. In order to know one of these properly, we must also know the other" (Calvin, 1982, p.11).
