The sixteenth century theologian John Calvin was the leading French Protestant reformer, whose landmark work ‘Institutes of the Christian Religion’ provided an interpretation of Christianity that deeply influenced Protestantism across the world. He was the principal figure in the development of a Christian theology later called Calvinism, which includes the doctrines of predestination and of the absolute sovereignty of God in salvation of the human soul from death and eternal damnation. This comprehensive eBook presents Calvin’s collected works, with numerous illustrations, rare texts, informative introductions and the usual Delphi bonus material. (Version 1)
