Theology Network is changing

UCCF continues to be committed to equipping today's Theology students to live and speak for Jesus in their chosen field of study.
Theology Network is now a part of UCCF's Leadership Network, so you can now find our resources at www.uccfleadershipnetwork.org/theology. As a result, this site will be taken down at the beginning of 2019.

 

Throughout the centuries, great theologians have thought long and hard and deep about the wonders of God and the great gospel of Jesus Christ. If we are to be both far-sighted and refreshing today, we need to stand on the shoulders of these giants, with the clean sea breeze of the centuries blowing through our minds.

To give you a leg up, we’re going to read and record for you short excerpts from the greats. May they be pure fresh air for you! Subscribe via iTunes or come back here each month for more.

The Breeze 008: The Knowledge of God

Monday, July 9th, 2012

Listen to the first chapter of Calvin's Institutes, and discover just how accessible and easy to read it is! (And then, read it!) 

Click on the links below for more of Calvin. Note: the easiest translation of the Institutes to read in English is the Ford Lewis Battles translation (John T McNeill - editor), but the version that is freely available online is the older Beveridge translation. The Beveridge translation is very accurate, but a good bit more difficult to read. So best advice: splash out on the hard copies of the Battles translation - thoroughly worth it!
