Review 2 for Truth for All Time: A Brief Outline of the Christian Faith
Date:May 16, 2010
Kudos: Truth For All Time may quite simply be the best, most concise summary of the Christian faith ever written. If you've never read Calvin you may be surprised to find how easily digestible his writings are. He is no dry, musty old theologian who will bore you to tears with technical dissections of the Greek and Hebrew language. John Calvin was both a theologian and a pastor. His writings reflect the love and passion he has for God and for his people.Knocks: How much can one learn from only 77 pages? A lot, frankly. However, if you want more then I highly recommend Calvin's Institutes of the Christian Religion. As Olyatt wrote in the above quote, the Institutes is a greatly expanded version of this book, taking the form of a thoroughly comprehensive systematic theology. Its influence on Christian thinking throughout the centuries should not be under-estimated.Recommendations: Whether you are a new convert or a seasoned believer, Truth For All Time will never fail to bless. It is a beautiful reminder of both the simplicity and majesty of the redemption we have in Christ Jesus our Lord. This book would make a wonderful tract to hand out to people we witness to in our evangelism efforts. Monergism Books sells a paperback edition for only $1.50. Order 10 or 20 at a time and hand out to friends, loved ones, co-workers or strangers you meet on the streets. Catechize your children with it or study it alongside your spouse.
