With a conspicuous flange, Saints Gone Before is proud to present a reading of John Calvin’s “The Institutes of the Christian Religion.” This is Book Three, Chapter 7, “A Summary of the Christian Life. Of Self Denial.” The translation is by Henry Beveridge in 1845. Calvin’s Institutes have a significant impact on Protestant theology starting with its Latin first edition in 1536.
This new series is part 1 of 2 for a very short series. Come back next week for the final reading of Calvin on Self-Denial in the Christian life.
