One of the challenges of reading older books is that sometimes the typeface is so hard to read. Maybe it’s my advancing age talking. I’m always excited when a classic book is published and made accessible to a new generation in the way it’s presented, while retaining the content of the original.
That’s why I’m happy to now own a copy of this edition of Calvin’s Institutes, hot off the press.
Hendrickson offers a one-volume hardcover edition of one of Western Christianity’s foundational works. Re-typeset into a clean and modern typeface, this edition is easy to read for the modern eye. This book will appeal to libraries, seminarians, pastors, and laypeople. Institutes of the Christian Religion by John Calvin is an introduction to the Bible and a vindication of Reformation principles by one of the Reformation’s finest scholars.
If you’ve never tackled this theological classic, you may be interested in this edition.
