Westminster John Knox Press The Institutes of the Christian Religion, 2 Vol.

Now in paperback, John T. McNeil's sterling translation of John Calvin's monumental Institutes of the Christian Religion is ready to serve yet another generation of church leader's, scholars, and dedicated laity.

The translation preserves the rugged strength and crisp prose of Calvin's writing, but also conforms to modern English while rendering heavy theological terms in simple language. The result is a translation that achieves a high degree of accuracy and at the same time is eminently readable. Often described as a difficult read, this version is very accessible and can be used for devotional purposes as well as in its more traditional mode as a magisterial theological exploration.

All previous editions of the Institutes--in Latin, French, German, and English--have been collated; references and notes have been verified, corrected, and expanded; and new bibliographies have been added. As such, the McNeil translation maintains its preeminent status among all English versions of Calvin's definitive contribution to the Christian church.
