Obtaining the Grace of Christ (Institutes of the Christian Religion)
Grace enables us to do what we could not do, to be what we could not be, and to believe what we could not believe, among other things. In this third book in The Institutes of Christian Religion, John Calvin teaches about the grace of Christ and shows the reader how to obtain His grace.
This profound work shows the reader: How faith justifies. The purpose of justification by faith. The liberty of the sons of God. The work of the Holy Spirit. The importance of prayer. The power of the Resurrection of Jesus Christ. Our role in spiritual warfare.
Considered by many to be the definitive work of Christian theology, John Calvin's Institutes of the Christian Religion is available from Bridge-Logos in four beautifully presented volumes. This version is translated by Henry Beveridge and contains the same additional material in each book that readers will find helpful for historical background and learning more about the person of John Calvin: the original translator's preface, the note from the original printers to the readers, the prefatory address (John Calvin to Francis, King of France), Calvin's epistle to the reader (prefix to his last, revised edition), and The Life of John Calvin by John Foxe (of Foxe's Book of Martyrs fame). Closing out each book is a study guide, a list of one hundred aphorisms from the four books, A Defense of Calvinism by Charles Haddon Spurgeon and a summary of the Five Points of Calvinism. All books are paperback. ~ Zach
