Book Description:

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.


Michael Horton (PhD, University of Coventry and Wycliffe Hall, Oxford) is the J. Gresham Machen Professor of Systematic Theology and Apologetics at Westminster Seminary in California. In addition to being the author of many popular and academic books, he is also the editor in chief of Modern Reformationmagazine, a host of the White Horse Innradio broadcast, and a minister in the United Reformed Churches.


Be warned. This looks like a book on how Calvin thought about living the Christian life. But open it and you will discover that Mike Horton is driving you on a grand Calvin tour of the whole of theology. And that, of course, is Professor Horton's (and John Calvin's) point: it takes the whole biblical gospel to make a whole Christian life. By employing the classical formulation of the two natures of Christ (distinct but not separate), Dr. Horton provides readers with a key to help unlock Calvin's teaching. But more than that, he shows why the Genevan Reformer's vision of the Christian life remains unsurpassed. Thoroughly satisfying, thoroughly enjoyable, and thoroughly recommended.' '" Sinclair B. Ferguson, Professor of Systematic Theology, Redeemer Seminary, Dallas, Texas
