In honor of the 500th anniversary of the birth of John Calvin I have a copy of Calvin’s Institutes of the Christian Religion courtesy of Emily Kiefer at Westminster John Knox to give away to some fortunate reader!
This is the two volume edition edited by John T. McNeill and translated by Ford Lewis Battles which was originally published by the Westminster Press in 1960 and was reissued by WJK in 2006.
So count it all joy that you, dear reader, have an opportunity to get your hands on this fantastic set! See the conditions of the contest directly below to learn how to enter and win.
Requirements for entry:
You must be a US resident.
You must have a blog.
You must not already own this set.
Rules for the contest:
You must announce this contest on your blog and link back to this post.
In the comments to this post tell me in 50 words or less why you want to read Calvin.
In the event that you win you must acknowledge WJK and this blog in a post on your blog (providing links to both).
Failure to meet the above conditions will result in immediate disqualification (and I will be counting all the words in your comments: 51 = disqualified).
The winner will be the one I think makes the best case for wanting to read Calvin and they will be announced on Sunday, February 15, 2009.
