John Calvin was first of all a preacher and pastor, then an exegete (the best of the Reformation), then a theologian, and finally a civic leader and city administrator. The Institutes, however, remains his single largest work and that by which he is commonly identified. He wrote it both as a primer for students of theology as well as reassurance for the French king that Protestants were not seditious. This series seeks to acquaint the listener with the major aspects of Calvin's theology as organized in the final edition of his Institutes of the Christian Religion (1559). Lectures include:

  • A Biography of John Calvin
  • The Knowledge of God
  • The Doctrine of Scripture
  • The Doctrine of Providence
  • The Trinity
  • Law and Gospel
  • The Mediator and His Work
  • Holy Spirit and Faith
  • Justification
  • Predestination
  • Church and Ministry
  • Sacraments
  • Sacraments and Baptism
