Product Description

Zeal for godliness is nothing less than zeal for the glory of God. It is the burning desire to please the Lord at all times, in all things, at all cost. While such zeal has marked Christians in every age, it especially coursed through the veins of the Geneva Reformer, John Calvin.

For many people, the very thought of John Calvin conjures up the image of a theologian whose writings are beyond the reach of the average person. But when asked, "Why did you become a theologian?", Calvin is said to have answered, "To become a pastor!" It is such zeal that lay at the heart of Calvin's purposes for his majestic work known as the Institutes of the Christian Religion.

That same desire lies behind this book of reflection from Calvin's Institutes. The one-page readings contained here have been compiled by the Alliance of Confessing Evangelicals and have been written by pastors, scholars, and churchmen for the contemporary church and Christian.

If you have been daunted by the thought of delving into the Institutes here is a book that will more than dispel your fears and whet your appetite to take up the challenge to read them in their entirety. Most of all, it is hoped that this work will stir within you a desire to follow Calvin and he followed Christ into a deeper, Bible saturated zeal for the triune God.

Publisher's Description

Following Calvin's intent with the Institutes, this book displays the coherence, trustworthiness, and glory of biblical truth for all ages. We hope these readings will awaken readers to the relevance of Calvin's theology, humble them by the depth of Calvin's insights, and challenge them in their progress in the Christian life. Most of all, we hope they discover that exploring the Institutes means following Calvin as he follows Christ into a deeper, Bible-saturated devotion to the triune God.

The content of the proposed book is adapted from the 2009 "Blogging Through the Institutes" project hosted by reformation21.org, the online magazine of the Alliance of Confessing Evangelicals.
