GOD THE REDEEMER
God the Redeemer is Book 2 in The Institutes of the Christian Religion by John Calvin. The Institutes are rightfully know as the Magnum Opus of Christian theology. God the Redeemer deals with the subject of redemption through Christ. It shows how God works in the hearts of human beings and refutes the concept of free will. Calvin deals with several important questions in this profound work: How does the New Testament resemble the Old Testament? How do the two testaments differ? Why was it necessary for the Christ to become a man? How can Christ be both divine and human? How did Christ perform the office of Redeemer? Of The Institutes of the Christian Religion Calvin wrote, It was more God's work than mine. This truth is revealed as one studies God the Redeemer.
