Institutes of Religion by John Calvin

John Calvin was just twenty-seven years old when the first edition of his Institutes was published in Basel in 1536. Calvin’s “little book” — as he affectionately called it — grew in size throughout the rest of his life; eventually, this early, shorter version evolved into what is now known as the Institutes, the 1559 edition, which Calvin considered the authoritative form of his thought for posterity.
