Item Description...
Overview
One of the half-dozen most important works published in the history of the church, Calvin's Institutes should be high on everybody's reading list. McKim, a much-esteemed Reformed scholar, has done us an enormous service by excerpting and introducing significant segments of the 1,500-page original.

Publishers Description
This abridgement of Ford lewis Battles' Calvin: Institutes of the Christian Religion provides an introduction to the seminal work in Reformed theology. In a concise format, McKim follows the main development of calvin's thought, accentuating his positive convictions without lingering over matters of only dated importance. The sheer bulk of the Institutes can be intimidating. This concise edition of only 220 pages should help to fulfil the demands of anyone who desires to become acquainted with the authentic texts of the Reformed tradition. It includes an interpretive introduction and notes by an established scholar of Reformed theology.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Shepherd's Guide to Calvin  Apr 11, 2008
Shepherd's Notes on Calvin's Institutes of the Christian Religion is a condensed summary of John Calvin's two volume work. For a layman who may not have the time nor the inclination to purchase and enjoy the theolocical logic of John Calvin and his musings on the depths of Almighty God's magnificent designs for mankind this is a "godsend" if you will excuse the pun. One doctrine that comes across loud and clear is the total depravity of man which in relief shows the awesome character and love God has for his creatures. Ron Houser
 
Don't forget your mother!  Mar 3, 2003
This book completely leaves out Calvin's fourth book, his treatment of the church. My suspicion is it was omitted because Calvin's doctrines didn't line up with those of the publisher. This ignoring of the doctrine of the church reinforces the erroneous idea that the body of Christ is insignificant when Calvin himself considered the Church our Mother.
 
Huge Omission  Mar 3, 2003
This book completely leaves out Calvin's fourth book, his treatment of the church. My suspicion is it was omitted because Calvin's doctrines didn't line up with those of the publisher.
 
Excellent, as far as it goes!  Dec 22, 2000
I bought this little book to help me teach a class on Book IV of the Institutes. But guess what? It only covers Books I-III. Book IV basically deals with Calvin's concept of the Church and Sacraments, so this little book will not be found too helpful if you're in the same position as me. However, the book is an excellent help on Books I-III. Very graphically oriented; it teaches just by means of its formatting! I'd like to know why the editors didn't include Book IV. Would it be that they are Baptists and Calvin's views challenge theirs?
