Annalex, I give you an "A" for effort, but we Catholics have so much good stuff to read already! Rather than read Calvin, perhaps you should consider St. Bellarmine or St Francis de Sales, who amply defend the faith against such ridiculous un-Christian theories as God is the creator of evil and that men are created specifically for hell. Reading such things will move you away from the God of Love - be careful.

Absolutely; I am ignorant of St. Bellarmine but I can attest to the devastation that St. Francis de Sales wrought on Calvin.
But we owe our opponents a degree of familiarity with their philosophy. The Institutes are praised as some masterpiece of theology unsurpassed in insight and clarity, so I figured I'd take a look at that wonder myself.
