Calvin on the Christian Life: Glorifying and Enjoying God Forever (Theologians on the Christian Life)
“Making use of the most recent in Reformation research, as well as letting the sources speak for themselves, Michael Horton gives us a wonderful overview of how John Calvin saw the life of the Christian. The book demonstrates the open attitude Calvin had toward living in this world and does away with the caricatures that still surround this Reformer. Hortons book is both academic and practicala rare but very welcome combination.”See All

“Scholar and pastor Michael Horton has provided us with a well-researched introduction to John Calvins doctrine of pietyCalvins word for the reverence and love that the gospel produces in all our relationships. One of the most intriguing aspects of Hortons book is the way he traces the theme of distinction without separation through the Christian life, whether with respect to the two natures of Christ, grace and the sacraments, or church and state. This book will enlighten beginners and refresh and challenge veterans in the field.”See All

“Calvin on the Christian Life provides an amazingly personal and comprehensive portrait of the Reformers passions and positions, constantly connecting them to issues of belief and practice in our day. Far more than a synthesis of Calvins thought and practice, this book provides readers with an intimate glimpse into his private piety.”See All

“Learned and lucid, masterfully organized, and vigorously expressed, this full, solid, and exact study of Genevas reforming pastor is an outstanding piece of work. In all four sections Calvin comes to vigorous life. Calvins reputation for godly wisdom, and Hortons for vivid writing, will certainly be enhanced.”See All

John Calvin, a man adored by some and maligned by others, stands as a legendary figure in Christian history. In Calvin on the Christian Life, professor Michael Horton offers us fresh insights into the Reformer's personal piety and practical theology by allowing Calvin to speak in his own words.
Drawing not only from his Institutes and biblical commentaries, but also from lesser-known tracts, treatises, and letters, this book will deepen your understanding of Calvin's theology and ministry by exploring the heart of his spiritual life: confident trust and unwavering joy in the sovereign grace of God.
