Description

Institutes of the Christian Religion is John Calvin's seminal work on Protestant systematic theology. Highly influential in the Western world and still widely read by theological students today, it was published in Latin in 1536 and in his native French in 1541. The book serves as an introductory textbook on the Protestant faith for those with some previous knowledge of theology and covers a broad range of theological topics from the doctrines of church and sacraments to justification by faith alone and Christian liberty. It vigorously attacks teachings which Calvin considered unorthodox, particularly Roman Catholicism to which Calvin says he had been "strongly devoted" before his conversion to Protestantism. The overarching theme of the book - and Calvin's greatest theological legacy - is the idea of God's total sovereignty, particularly in salvation and election. Institutes of the Christian Religion is highly-regarded as a secondary reference for the system of doctrine adopted by the Reformed churches, which is commonly referred to as Calvinism.

A Must Read/Listen For Reformed Christians!

What did you love best about Institutes of the Christian Religion?

That's a difficult question to answer. The Institutes are much easier to understand than I thought. I thought this was only to be read by theologians, but as a lay person, it's very easy to understand. Bob Souer did an excellent job of narrating! So, his smooth voice and even levels made it enjoyable to listen to. Good job Bob!

What did you like best about this story?

This is a non fiction book, so, it's not a story....

Which scene was your favorite?

I loved the Doctrines of Grace and Calvin's writing on prayer.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

No, because it runs 67 hours :) But I listen to it several times a week.

Any additional comments?

Wonderful narration! This book is not for everyone. I would highly suggest that people who are leery of "Calvinisn"--read this book, or any book that Calvin writes. It's very Biblical. It changed me from a Synergist to a Monergist. I am sold that the Doctrines of Grace are Biblical.

Excellent voice for an excellent classic.

If you could sum up Institutes of the Christian Religion in three words, what would they be?

The Christian Faith

Any additional comments?

This audio split into 8 sections, but the chapters are split up quite well. Since the Institutes has a well-defined indexing (book:chapter:section), it shouldn't be too hard to jump to where you want to go.

The narrator's voice was perfect for this text.

Excellent literature, but read robotically.

The Institutes is an incredible collection of theology and apologetics by a brilliant scholar and pastor. Unfortunately this reading is a bit dull. It is hard to tell whether it is a human or a computer generated voice.

Beautifully presented truth of the Christian religion

There's no doubt that John Calvin understood the tenets of the Christian faith, and his exegesis of the scripture leaves very little doubt to the fact of his conclusions about its practice. I recommend this book to all Christians, especially to those who have had a tug in their hearts about teachings about Catholicism and other denominations that have let their fleshly understanding and religiosity take preeminence over the clear word of God and its simplicity. Reading the Bible would never be the same after reading this.

Every Reformed Christian read once to understand.

Are you Reformed? In order to have first hand knowlage listen and know what it means to think the thoughts of Calvin. His thoughts are clear renderings of Paul's therefore useful to our understanding of what it means to be a true, born again, spirit filled, elect and redeemed Christian. Every sermon that I have taken to heart seems to have had its origin in Calvin's words.

Excellent rendition of The Institutes!

While this is a very long endeavor for an audiobook, it is well worth the time investment.

Got Time??

Wow—can’t believe I finished this! A fascinating listen, but I wish you had used a more modern translation. There’s probably close to 500 English words in there that I’ve never heard before. Still glad I did it.

excellent

The great John Calvin explains biblical doctrines and shows why Luther, Himself and the others stood firm against the teachings of the Roman Catholic Church. At the same time he stresses the need for the Christian to do all things in love. Taking into account the overall betterment of those around you including your adversaries. Definitely worth listening to. As a matter of fact, I've now purchased the hard copy book :)

How great to have Calvin’s Institutes on Audible!

Anyone who asserts themselves to be a Calvinist in any sense ought to be familiar with Calvin’s writings. The “Institutes” are the substance of the (unfortunately reduced) five points that answered the Remonstrants/Arminians at the Synod of Dort 1618-19. Intended as a primer for the Christian Calvin composed a systematic (sort of) Q&A of biblical theology with a robust apologetic nature. The introductory letter to King Francis is a wonderfully edifying apologetic that is of historical, political and theological significance. I intended to listen to this many times.
