This is an abridgment of Calvin's masterpiece on the Christian Religion. It deserves to be read by anyone who professes to be part of Protestantism, whether you agree with the 'five points of Calvinism' or not. If you are not Protestant, but wish to understand the causes and true points of conflict for the Reformation, you must deal with Calvin. Blindly competing with 20th century manifestations of Evangelical Protestantism just doesn't cut it. The Reformers had specific problems with the Roman church, and those problems hold true to this day. If the Protestant churches are going to engage our culture positively, we must understand what we beleive and why, or else we fall into relativity. And that goes nowhere. I cannot recommend Calvin's great treatise enough.
