it was amazing
bookshelves: to-read

The basics and glories of the Christian faith are clearly stated in this book by the man who has had much evil spoken about him, John Calvin. Isn't it just like the devil to destroy the reputation of a man of God. In a day when doctrine is looked at as something to be ignored because it divided, this book brings the truth to light that every Christian should rally around the Gospel.

For Nine hundred years the Gospel was walled up inside the Catholic church, behind teachings like the treasury of merit, Indulgences, Purgatory, works righteousness, and a host of others. At a time when God broke through the darkness and once again brought forth the glorious light of the Gospel of Christ through Salvation by Christ alone, Justification by faith alone, to the glory of God alone, by Christ alone, by the scriptures alone, he greatly used this man to clarify and organized these great doctrines of the faith.

You will not be more blessed with the value of pure Christian doctrine than by reading these books.
