Taken from John Calvin's magnum opus Institutes of the Christian Religion, this book has inspired readers around the world for more than four centuries. This concise and practical devotional was first printed for the purpose of teaching Christians how to live out their faith. Focusing on subjects such as righteousness, self-denial, the significance of the cross, suffering, and how we should live our lives today, Calvin stresses the importance that believers cling to the grace given through Christ's death and resurrection. He proposes practical ways to bring that grace into our fallen world without abusing our roles as representatives of God.
