Book Cover: Institutes of the Christian Religion, ed. John T. McNeill, Trans. Ford Lewis Battles
Part of the Garnet Milne's Has the Bible Been Kept Pure? series:

Volumes 1 & 2

Under the supervision of John McNeill, a team of expert Latinists and Calvin scholars worked to produce what has become the definitive English edition of the "Institutes". All previous editions were consulted; references and notes were verified; and new bibliographies were added. The translation itself preserves the strength and vividness of Calvin's prose, while not flinching from breaking up overly long sentences to conform to modern English usage, or, wherever possible, rendering technical theological terms in simple language.
