In this classic devotional John Calvin urges readers to apply the Christian life in a balanced way to mind heart and hand Rather than focusing on contemplative otherworldliness the book stresses the importance of a devotedly active Christian life br br In style and spirit this book is much like Augustine s Confessions Bunyan s Pilgrim s Progress or Thomas A Kempis s Imitation of Christ However its intense practicality sets it apart making it easily accessible for any reader seeking to carry out Christian values in everyday life Chapter themes include obedience self denial the significance of the cross and how we should live our lives today, Succinctly states the principal disputes of the Reformation What were the central grievances which caused Protestants to demand reform What measures were essential for genuine reformation Calvin declares the biblical doctrine of justification The reformer also unfolds the wider scope of the Reformation as he states the need to restore biblical doctrine and practice regarding the proper means of worship the correct administration of the sacraments and the government of the church, Readings from Calvin s Commentary on the Psalms capture the depth of his insight wisdom and devotion to God and provide a year s worth of daily meditations, This abridged edition of the i Institutes i provides a readable and inexpensive sampler of Calvin s greatest work Lane has condensed the edition retaining the heart of Calvin s teachings on all his major themes
