This Is A Must for Every Christian
Brothers and sisters -- do not pass this set by. This has been one of the most influential set of books for this aspiring theologian. This translation is the easiest to understand in plain English; it is the best of all the translations. It is a masterpiece; and outside of the Bible, the best theological work I have yet read (and am yet reading). I believe that every pastor -must- read this. For every lay person, it is beneficial; and it will not leave you the same after you have read it.
don't get any other translation
This is simply the finest translation of Calvin's Insitutes. What makes this translation so good is the indexes of names, topics, and biblical verses....Mcneil's edition is tried and tested in this two volume set. It is a must have for anyone wanting to read Calvin in a durable hardcover edition. The indexes are invaluable in finding subjects that Calvin addresses. This is the one.
