My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Must read!

I used this book as a companion to my own reading of the Institutes. Although it doesn’t account for every bit of Calvin’s theology, (as no single volume could) it provides great insight to the major theological themes of the Institutes which must be grasped in order to understand the man.

Expositions of these themes are each supported with additional information that allows the reader to understand some of the ways in which Calvin’s theology was inspired by the Scriptures, philosophers, church fathers, and his peers.

Some of the best Calvin scholars have contributed to this book. As a result, there is a wealth of resources that are recommended for those who wish to further their studies on various aspects of the Reformer.

This guide successfully retains the brevity and accessibility that Calvin strove to preserve. Thus, it is ideal for the student, pastor, and those who simply want to explore the riches of Calvin’s famous text. Enjoy!
