Overview

John Calvin exercised a profound ministry in Europe, and is probably one of the most seminal thinkers ever to have lived. A godly pastor, theologian and preacher, he led his flock by example and worked hard to establish consistent godliness in his city. A prolific writer, his sermons, letters, and, of course, his ‘Christian Institutes’ have been published again and again. His writings—once described as ‘flowing prose’—are characterized by clarity, simplicity, and yet profoundness, too. In these heart-warming pieces, drawn from his commentaries and sermons, Calvin brings us to Christ, the glorious Saviour of all his people.

“True repentance is displeasure at sin, which, along with love and desire for righteousness, arises out of fear and reverence for God.” (Page 214)

“All our fears arise from this source: we are too anxious about our life and fail to acknowledge that God is our preserver. We can have no tranquility until we are persuaded that our life is sufficiently protected by God’s omnipotent power.” (Page 63)

“The fountain of all evils, the most hurtful of all plagues, the deadliest poison of all churches is a minister who seeks his own interests rather than those of Christ.” (Page 238)

“True faith is when men quietly submit themselves to God, being persuaded that their salvation is singularly precious in his sight.” (Page 79)

“The man who holds the office of teacher must apply himself to receiving truth before attempting to communicate it.” (Page 72)

Daily devotionals—spiritual aids to help us be accountable for a life of disciplined reading of Scripture and prayer—have been around for centuries and need a certain caliber of excellence and insight if they are to prove of lasting value through 365 days! Of those I’d like to spend a year with as my spiritual guide and mentor, John Calvin is most certainly one of them. Joel Beeke guides us through the Reformer’s writings to help us discover the help and insight that every Christian needs to live a God-honoring life for Jesus Christ.

    Whilst there were many good devotional readings throughout this book, I just didn’t enjoy it as much as I did the many similar volumes of “365 days with Spurgeon”. Maybe I am too Lutheran these days to enjoy Calvin as much as I once did - don’t get me wrong, there is still much I appreciate in Calvin’s writing. However with this book I often found Beeke’s closing thoughts to be more “devotional” than I found the selection of Calvin that had been chosen. Always good to have a daily dose of those who have gone before us :)

    There is an error in the heading at the top of the cover. It read's Spurgeon rather than Calvin.
