A New Calvin Book!


The year of 2017 is being celebrated around the globe as the 500th anniversary of the Protestant Reformation. In honor of that fact, Dr. David B. Calhoun (the advisor of my doctoral dissertation at Covenant Theological Seminary) published a guide to John Calvin’s masterful “Institutes of the Christian Religion.” This volume directs you to various readings from the “Institutes,” presents illuminating quotes on Calvin’s life and his doctrine, and asks thoughtful questions for personal reflection and application. It is based on the two volume McNeill-Battles edition of the “Institutes,” and is entitled “Knowing God and Ourselves: Reading Calvin’s Institutes Devotionally,” The Banner of Truth Trust (2016). Make sure to get a copy!
