  • Summary:

    Instruction in Faith┬áis a clear, serene, and even pleasant statement of Christian faith written by John Calvin when he was twenty-seven to twenty-eight years of age….For us today it is a classic confession of a humanist scholar who was called to be a Christian and minister in a chaotic and dangerous time. For this reason it help us today to think and live as Christians”.—From the Foreword by John H. Leith

    This translation of a very enlightening book includes all the essentials of Calvin’s position, unobscured by the complicated discussions characteristic of Calvin’s later writings. Keeping Calvin’s intentions in mind, Paul Fuhrmann presents an edition that has value for people who have a scholarly interest in the Reformed tradition and for lay readers who wish to clarify and strengthen their own faith.
