This short “treatise” is taken from Calvin's Institutes of the Christian Religion – his magnum opus and a fundamental theological text of the Reformed Tradition. The first edition of the Institutes was a short work of six chapters, published in 1536; by the fifth and final edition in 1559 it had been greatly revised and enlarged (79 chapters), reflecting Calvin's mature thought and theological understanding. Divided into four books, it is effectively a “systematic” Theology, moving from:
God the Creator
God the Redeemer in Christ
The mode of obtaining the Grace of Christ
The Holy Catholic Church
This treatise comprises chapters 6-10 of Book Three (“The Mode of Obtaining the Grace of Christ. The Benefits It Confers, and the Effects Resulting from It.”)
