Born in 1509 in the Picardy Region of France, John Calvin followed Martin Luther to become one of the premier leaders of the Protestant Reformation.
In 1536, Calvin published a four book treatise outlining the Doctrine of the Reformed Faith. Today he remains a figure head for the Hungarian Reformed Churches in America.
The four books, entitled “The Institutes of the Christian Religion,” are broken down by subject in the following manner:
BOOK 1: Knowledge of God the Creator.
BOOK 2: The Knowledge of God the Redeemer in Christ, First Disclosed to the Fathers under the Law, and Then to Us in the Gospel.
BOOK 3: The Way in Which we Receive the Grace of Christ: What Benefits Come to Us From It, and What Effects Follow.
