This book is a little gem!…It would be hard to find a clearer summary of the faith in so short a compass, and perhaps impossible to find one so warm…Well worth the read! , EVANGELICALS NOW

Book Description

‘John Calvin knew that if the biblical truths rediscovered at the Reformation were to spread throughout the world, they would have to be presented in a form which ordinary people could understand. So, during the winter of 1536-1537, the 29 year old Calvin wrote, in French, his Brief Outline of the Christian Faith…This is Calvin’s striking but concise attempt to define the Christian faith for ordinary people!…Here you have the very core of Protestant belief and feel the warmth of its ardent love for God and men.’– From the preface by Stuart Olyott

    This is an excellent short book of christian teaching by the French Reformer, which has been translated into English for us by Stuart Olyott.
    Ultimately, this work would be expanded by Calvin, until it grew into his extensive ‘Institutes of the Christian Religion.’ However, this briefer work is a good introduction to the christian faith and systematic theology. It is very simple to read, and christians both old and new should be helped by it. Handy as a daily devotional read.
