A Little Book on the Christian Life
“Calvins treatment of the Christian life in book 3 of his Institutes is a treasure. For more than five hundred years, Christian believers have profited from the clear way in which Calvin describes the Christian life of self-denial and cross-bearing in union with Jesus Christ. Reformation Trust Publishings fresh translation of this Christian classic is a most welcome addition to earlier publications of Cal- vins masterful description of life in conformity to Christ.”See All

“The smooth and pleasant Latin Calvin wrote has found a just as smooth and pleasant translation in this wonderful little book. That sure is an accomplishment and will help many to enjoy even more the timeless message this trea- sure contains.”See All

“I have often thought, I would love to retranslate for the twenty-first century the life-shaping material in Calvins Institutes book 3, chapters 610, and Ive done nothing! But now, Burk Parsons and Aaron Denlinger have done the job for us all. We owe them a big thank you, because every Christian needs to have a working knowledge of this little book.”See All

“We are living in a golden age of Christian publishing. Readers are being served with new works written here in the twenty-first century and, perhaps even more importantly, with classics from days gone by. This booklet is one of those classics, and Im grateful to Aaron Denlinger and Burk Par- sons for allowing todays Christians to rediscover it. I pray that it blesses us just as it blessed many of our forebears.”See All

“What does it mean to take up your cross and follow Jesus Christ? How can you be heavenly minded and yet do much earthly good? Calvin addresses these practical ques- tions and more in this excerpt from his classic, Institutes of the Christian Religion. I love this little book, and heartily endorse this judiciously translated and edited printing that makes Calvin even more accessible to the modern reader.”See All
