John Calvin thinks we need Scripture. Chapter 6 of The Institutes of the Christian Religion is his argument for why that is, and so we commend it to you.

Are you enjoying this foray into The Institutes? If so, would you drop us a line to let us know whether you want to hear the whole book in our bite-sized format? You can contact us at churchhistorypodcast@gmail.com, on Facebook at "An Oral History of the Church," or on Twitter @OralHistoryPod.

Today's text comes from Henry Beveridge, who completed his translation in 1845. The Institutes was originally published in 1536.

Come back next week for the first part of an essay by Herman Bavinck on the thought of John Calvin!
