Calvin’s Institutes of the Christian Religion in Arabic
(11 November 2017 12:00 am)

The project of translating John Calvin's Institutes of the Christian Religion to Arabic has been finally completed. The idea was conceived in 2007, and work actually commenced in 2008; after 9 years two large volumes in Arabic appeared. On Saturday Nov. 11, 2017, and coinciding with N.E.S.T.'s 85th anniversary, a launching event was held in our Auditorium in collaboration with the publishing house, Dar Manhal al-Hayat. Attended by around 95 persons, the event was a great success. N.E.S.T. was commended by many guests and friends on this achievement. Calvin's Institutes is one of the greatest classics of Reformed theology and doctrine. It had never been translated into Arabic before despite the fact that the largest Protestant churches in the Middle Eastern region are from the Reformed tradition. The whole project would not have been possible without generous funding from the "Fondation pour l'aide au Protestantisme réformé" (FAP) in France. GZB of Holland also contributed a small sum.
