Format: Paperback
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. As you read this book you will sense that the truth of God, so clearly taught here, is something that you are expected to live. May this be the experience of every reader who, by reading this book, is looking at the Christian faith for the first time. And may this increasingly be the experience of all of us who, by God's kindness, have already been brought into personal union with our Lord Jesus Christ.
"A classic statement of Christian belief." -- The Discerning Reader.

6 of 6 people found the following review helpful By Brandon Lucas on May 15, 2010
Format: Paperback
Synopsis:
This little treasure found its way into my hands via a recommendation from a good friend. After finishing the book he lamented that he had not read it immediately following his conversion. He commented that he would have been much more well established in the foundations of the Christian faith from the get-go and wouldn't have struggled nearly as much to attain the doctrinal understanding he has achieved today. Curious, I ordered a copy immediately. I must admit, I couldn't agree more with his assertion. Truth For All Time is a concise outline of the essential Christian doctrines that no believer should be ignorant of. I'll let Stuart Olyott, who translated the text from French to English, explain Calvin's motivation for sketching an outline of the Christian faith. This is from the book's preface:

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 [Bre've Instruction chre'tienne]. This short book is, in fact, a resume' of the first edition of his Institutes of the Christian Religion and many passages in it are taken word for word from that earlier work.

Calvin packed volumes of wisdom in a mere 77 pages.

Format: Paperback
I have used this book many times with new people in our congregation. I find that it works extremely well with those who are new to the Christian faith, and also with those who have a strong background in Reformed theology. There is something in this short book for everyone. I learn more every time I go through it.
