Publisher's Description

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.

In style and spirit, this book is much like Augustine's Confessions, Bunyan's Pilgrim's Progress, or Thomas à 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.

Author Bio

    This is one of the best little books that you will ever read. Written in a devotional style, it is a concise treatment of Christian thought and behavior. Buy it. Read it. Share it.

    This review was written for Golden Booklet of the True Christian Life.
    I read this small book over Christmas. Expecting another cheesy book of discipleship, as popular today, I was pleasantly surprised! Calvin shows a rare, yet needed, emphasis on the 'inner' life of a follower of Christ. Each of the five chapters deal with vital issues of our hearts that affect lives of holiness. His brief discussion on humility, in my opinion, is the gem of the book where he provides very practical means of self-denial. I recommend this book very highly with the counsel to read it slowly as a daily devotional, BUT with a warning: it could profoundly challenge your life!

    This review was written for Golden Booklet of the True Christian Life.
    In John Calvins book, the Golden Booklet of the True Christian Life, he sets out to give instruction as to how a Christian should live his or her life so as to be in obedience to Christ. This book is laid out in a devotional like manner and has purposely been written in a simpler style(pg 10) than some of Calvins other works. The book has been laid out into five major sections: the first dealing with humility, then self-denial, patience, hopefulness, and lastly a proper appreciation for earthly things. Before the opening chapter, Calvin has a prayer to Almighty God, and in this prayer one can catch a glimpse of the theme of the entire book; that we may put ourselves so under thy rule that we may go to meet death in full confidence of thy assistance and without fear (pg. 13).If you want to read more go to http://www.pchasesears.com/bookreview/default.asp?id=4
