Truth For All Time: A Brief Outline of the Christian Faith
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 that ordinary people could understand. So, during the winter of 1536-37, 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 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.

I found this book interesting. There are a few areas where Calvin and I disagree, such as infant baptism and his basically unlimited submission to civil government. I did learn from this book; I especially enjoyed Calvin's explanation of the Ten Commandments and Jewish superstition regarding days (Sabbath observance). When I read this book, I felt that Calvin was expressing a love of God and the scriptures that is missing from modern preachers. Overall, I enjoyed this book.
The booklet reads well, has good type, an important table of contents (which shows Calvin's beginning commitment to the "loci method" -- he will ultimately switch to the outline of the Apostles' Creed), and an insightful preface telling of its history in "calvinalia." Highly recommended.

True there is a treatment of the Ten Commandments in the chapter on the law but it would hardly add to anyone's store of knowledge. I like Calvin as a rule and love Olyott as a writer but this is a disappointing work.
