It’s John Calvin’s birthday (almost)

Next year marks the 500th anniversary of John Calvin’s birth.  A number of books are being published already as biographical retrospectives of his life.

And ChristianAudio is also making available for free one of his books in an audio format.  Of Prayer and the Christian Life is actually a portion of his larger work, The Institutes of Christian Religion.  If you are overwhelmed by the daunting task of reading such a large work, this might be a nice introduction as you make your commute to work.  The instructions for receiving this work are as follows:

Calvin: Of Prayer and The Christian Life

Prayer as Calvin describes it is not giddy, and he goes on to give Scriptural definitions of proper thought, engagement, and attitude. What do the roles of patience and self-denial play in the role of the Christian life and what does Christian piety look like? What should our views be of the present life and the future life? These two sections of The Institutes guide us ever so thoughtfully and gracefully into his theology and practice of Christian living.
