    In the thread on the best edition of Calvin's Institutes of the Christian Religion, it was mentioned that this edition was the best. However, the first review mentioned that it was very poorly laid out for Kindle users. In light of this, which digital version of Calvin's institutes would be best for the Kindle?

    If your eyes get tired, you can find the audio version here: MP3 Files for Institutes of the Christian Religion (by John Calvin) - Christian Classics Ethereal Library

    I haven't listened to them yet so I'm not sure of their quality. I plan on using it while I run, and before I go to sleep.

    I downloaded them. I guess it's only the first 2 books.

    Edit: Found the rest here --> http://www.doxologypress.org/theaudio/audio/calvin/index.html

    Just be aware, the Henry Beveridge version is not really the best English versions, though the best don't seem to be on Kindle. If I remember rightly, one of Calvin's successors took it upon himself to rewrite the Institutes. Beveridge is a translation of that. I know Covenant Seminary in US and Welsh Evangelical School of Theology in the UK use the McNeill/Battles edition.You of course can read Beveridge, but it's worth bearing the limitations of his translation in mind.
