I was completely blown away with the way this book is done! I have tried to read the Institutes in the paper form but the volume of the work presents a serious challenge. So when I got my Nook, the Institutes was one of the first books I downloaded in hopes to finally conquer it. Too bad I got it from a different publisher - the digital version I had bought seemed even more confusing. One of my friends, a Reformed pastor, suggested I tried this version. I still cannot believe how well done this one is. The clear structure of the book, the hyperlinks, the active table of content, the ease of navigation is above any expectations! It includes all the text from the original work, all Calvin's notes on the Bible verses (you can basically open a list of Bible verses he commented on and "jump" directly to his notes on a particular verse, and then back), and yet you can easily navigate between all books, chapters and sections. I highly recommend this book to anyone interested in serious approach to studying the Bible or Christian religion all together. And if you are bound to read Calvin's Institutes, do yourself a favor and get this one - you will be impressed!

Henry Beveridge's translation of John Calvin's "Institutes of the Christian Religion" is wonderful. Usually you find Calvin's Institutes in a two-volume set, but it is nicely packaged here in one compete volume. John Calvin was of the mentality that whether in teaching or writing, lucid brevity should always be kept in mind - and he held to his advice. This volume is succint, clear, and very readable. Many people are intimidated by its size, but because it is so well-written, you find yourself almost reading it like a novel instead of as a reference. Also, because it was Calvin's 500th birthday this last summer (2009), this version of his Institutes was tacked onto the 500th Anniversary Edition of Calvin's Commentaries as a bonus. For anyone who is interested in this book as an introduction to Calvinism/Presyterianism/Reformed Theology, I highly recommend it.

John Calvin's "Institutes of the Christian Religion" has to rank as one of the great theological tomes of the Christian Religion. Calvin's theology, as set forth in this volume, have been a major influence not only in religion but in government, economics, and education for 500 years and counting. It is not an easy read. The concepts are dense, the argumentation and logic unassailable and every concept and every page builds on all that has gone before. To attempt to dip in and extract Calvin's thoughts will inevitably result in gross misinterpretation. To skip even a single paragraph risks losing a key concept. This is not a book for the casual reader, rather for the serious students of Reform Theology, history, government, economics, and modern western society. For a first introduction to Calvin's thought try his "Instructions in Faith" written for his parishioners in Geneva.
