A Theological Guide to Calvin's Institutes: Essays and Analysis
Hall, David W. & Lillback, Peter A.
"As a contribution to the celebrations marking the 500th anniversary of Calvin's birth, this collection of essays is to be warmly welcomed. If this symposium leads people back to read Calvin's Institutes for themselves, it will have fulfilled a good purpose."See All

"This book is the work of a team of scholars . . . . Full advantage is taken of the current cottage industry of Calvin studies, which has achieved already notable insights in many areas. The essays vary in technical level, but are all strong and clear for the wayfaring man, and some are outstanding. They add up to a very valuable volume, which I commend with enthusiasm. For making Calvin known today as well as once he was, and in every age deserves to be, this really is a major step forward."See All
