Ancient Bible

1582 John Calvin’s Institutes of the Christian Religion

No theology book has ever been more loved or hated than this Magnum Opus of the Reformation, addressing the most controversial question in church history: “Which comes first in the believer’s heart: faith or regeneration?” Every Christian needs to read and understand this defense of God’s total sovereignty in the salvation of His chosen children.

Do we choose God or does God choose us? Well… which is it? It seems like a simple enough question, but be careful… your answer will effect every aspect of the nature of God and man. Is God truly sovereign, or just mostly sovereign? Does man really have “free will”, or does it just seem that he does? Who determines your eternal destiny: you or God? Are you saved by faith alone… or is it actually faith plus one work: seeing your need for God on your own, and coming to Him of your own supposedly “free will”?


Please Note:  This is a low-resolution photo, which shows the format, but makes reading the text nearly impossible.  In reality, the text of these Bibles is large enough and clear enough to read very easily.
