The Revised Calvinist Version of the Bible


The Revised Calvinist Version is not really a printed translation that you might find at your local Christian book store. Rather, it a translation of the concepts which Calvinists might see when they read the words which are in the Bible. Because of their belief system, what you see and what a Calvinist sees may indeed be two different things.
