Description

This revised edition of Battles’s translation will interest general readers who wish to better understand the earliest expression of Calvin’s theology, as well as scholars who wish to pursue further research.

This is the definitive English-language edition of one of the monumental works of the Christian church. All previous editions–in Latin, French, German, and English–have been collated; references and notes have been verified, corrected, and expanded; and new bibliographies have been added.The translation preserves the rugged strength and vividness of Calvin’s writing, but also conforms to modern English and renders heavy theological terms in simple language. The result is a translation that achieves a high degree of accuracy and at the same time is eminently readable.

Long recognized for the quality of its translations, introductions, explanatory notes, and indexes, the Library of Christian Classics provides scholars and students with modern English translations of some of the most significant Christian theological texts in history. Through these works–each written prior to the end of the sixteenth century–contemporary readers are able to engage the ideas that have shaped Christian theology and the church through the centuries.
