Calvin's Institutes is one of the most important theological works of the last millennium, but even seminarians and pastors have difficulty finishing it. Battles was experienced in guiding students through this volume, teaching it for forty-five years. His detailed outline and summary are now available for everyone interested in Calvin's great work.


"Students and teachers of Calvin are [now] further indebted to Ford Lewis Battles, the noted Calvin translator and scholar. . . .With the availability of the Analysis, perhaps more people will take up the challenge and read (and more to teach!) the Institutes."

—David Foxgrover, Sixteenth Century Journal

"Will surely prove to be a useful guide for serious students of the Institutes, providing a comprehensive overview of the longer work."

—Maria Bulgarella, Calvin Theological Journal

"An excellent outline of Calvin's Institutes."
