Francis Turretin (1623–87) has been called “the best expounder of the doctrine of the Reformed church” (Samuel Alexander) and “a towering figure among the Genevan Reformers” (Leon Morris). First published in the late 1600s, his Institutio Theologicae Elencticae is the fruit of some thirty years of his teaching at the Academy of Geneva, and this three-volume set is the first complete edition to be published in the English language. As an elenctic theology, it seeks to affirm and demonstrate the truth by refuting false doctrine—in this case contrasting a comprehensive Reformed theology with conflicting perspectives, particularly Roman Catholic, Arminian, and Socinian views.

Three volume includes:

Volume 1: First through Tenth Topics

Volume 2: Eleventh through Seventeenth Topics

Volume 3: Eighteenth through Twentieth Topics



"If ever a great theological work has been unjustly neglected it has been Francis Turretin’s masterful volumes on the whole of Christian doctrine. . . . I heartily . . . commend [them] to preachers, theological students, and lay persons everywhere."

—James M. Boice

"The larger availability in English of Turretin’s complete Institutes is a welcome contribution . . ."

—Carl F. H. Henry

". . . a noteworthy event for the Reformed churches and for all who take an interest in the history and development of Reformed theology. . . ."

—Sinclair B. Ferguson
