GOLDEN BOOKLET OF THE TRUE CHRISTIAN LIFE has inspired readers around the world for more than four centuries.

Now in paperback, this classic devotional will guide you on how to apply biblical principles to everyday life. Originally part of John Calvin's INSTITUTES, the devotional covers themes such as obedience, self-denial, the significance of the Cross, and how believers should live their lives today.

Rather than focusing on contemplative other-worldliness, the GOLDEN BOOKLET OF THE TRUE CHRISTIAN LIFE stresses the importance of a devotedly active Christian life. In style and spirit, it is much like Augustine's CONFESSIONS, Bunyan's PILGRIM'S PROGRESS, or Thomas Kempis' IMITATION OF CHRIST. Its intense practicality, however, sets it apart, making it easily accessible for anyone seeking to carry out Christian values in everyday life.
The translator, Henry J Van Andel, competently preserved the colourful language and direct style of which John Calvin was a recognized master.

Meet the Author

John Calvin

John Calvin, born in 1509 and designated for the Catholic priesthood by his father, became the great French Protestant reformer famous for his doctrine of predestination and his theocratic view of the state. In Geneva, he rejected Papal authority, established a new scheme of civic and ecclesiastical governance, and created a central hub from which Reformed theology was propagated. He engaged in long bitter struggles over the independence of the Church from the State and the rules he tried to impose on Geneva as a whole. The Institutes of the Christian Religion, one of the most famous theological books ever published established Calvin's system of doctrine and Church which has shaped more minds and entered into more nations than that of any other reformer. When he died in Geneva in 1564, he left both a city and a world transformed by the impact of his ideas and beliefs. - Publisher.
