We see all around us that the world is on a quest for pleasure, power, profit, and position.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Not Missional, But Personal Instruction  Nov 14, 2007
Dr Joel Beeke, long-standing stalwart of the Reformation and its Puritan heritage, gives us, as modern day people, an insight into the lives of not only the churchmen of the Puritan era, but also the folk in the pew.

Struggling to come to terms with suffering and injustice, living in perilous times, these men and women are fine examples of how we should conduct ourselves in the world today. That we portray a positive example to the lost is a biblical imperative from Christ.

On piety:
'But Calvin helped Christians understand that the pious live Coram Deo, 'in the presence of God', from the heart and in daily life. Piety is, therefore, voluntary and unforced, motivated by delight in God.' pg 73

On worship:
'The worship of God is always primary, for one's relationship to God takes precedence over everything else.' pg 73

On culture:
'Friend, if you marry the spirit of this age, you'll find yourself a widow or a widower in the age to come.' pg 37

On sin:
'When we surrender to the devil's temptation, that failure is rooted in unbelief.' pg 36

On holiness:
'As Stephen Charnock concludes: 'This is the prime way of honoring God: we do not seek to glorify God by elevated admirations, or eloquent expressions, or pompous services for Him, as when we aspire to conversing with Him with unstained spirits, and live to Him in living like Him.' pg 83

Quoting Calvin on election:
'We shall never be clearly persuaded...that our salvation flows from the wellspring of God's free mercy until we come to know the very sweet fruit of God's eternal election.' pg 72

A long hard look at mature Christian conduct.
