All books by John Calvin

John Calvin (1509–1564), trained initially as a lawyer, was a French theologian, pastor, and reformer in Geneva during the Protestant Reformation. He was a principal figure in the development of the system of Christian theology later called Calvinism. His Institutes of the Christian Religion and many biblical commentaries are still widely influential among Protestant Christians.

Sermons on the Acts of the Apostles
Rob Roy Macgregor

Calvin pulls no punches. If belief does not end in an increasingly Christlike character, it is as good as no belief, no theology.

Sermons on the Beatitudes

This is a modern translation by Robert White of five sermons preached by Calvin in Geneva in 1560 covering Matthew 5:1-2, Mark 3:13-19 and Luke 6:12-26. The excellent introduction illuminates the historical and literary background and asserts that the Beatitudes…

A book that changed me: Institutes of the Christian Religion

A book that changed me: Commentaries on the Book of the Prophet Daniel
