Finally Got Calvin’s Institutes

Mike Aubrey suggested I save a search for Calvin’s Institutes so that I would get an e-mail message each day notifying me of new items up for bidding. I’ve bid on a few and most are going for about $40 which is more than I want to pay much less the $50 new on Amazon.

So I saw one come up with a Buy It Now price of $25 plus $4 shipping in like new condition. Since that’s so much lower than what they’ve been going for I thought I better get it while I’m up with this dreadful insomnia.

I probably won’t read it until next year but at least I have it now. After that I’d like to read some of the earlier Puritans and move on to a book or two by Jonathan Edwards.

    I have been reading through a condensed version that only hits the main points of his institutes edited by Tony Lane and Hilary Osborne. I think I got it for about $15 new at a Christian book store. I’m not sure if I’ll have a need to read the full one or not.

    I need to pick that up as well. I just ordered some MacArthur and Luther. Calvin will have to wait for now. A hear so many great things about that book though. Enjoy!

    I have that exact edition and I think’s it’s good for one thing – WIDE MARGINS!!! The margins are good enough to make notes in, which is always helpful when reading.

    I never thought about margins. I should be getting it soon.
