This devotional book, written for the purpose of teaching Christians how to live out their
faith, is divided into five sections. First, Calvin tells us that every follower of Christ loves
righteousness and is called to righteousness. The following chapters suggest ways to go
about seeking righteousness. In answering Christ's call to live rightly, Calvin stresses the
importance of constant patience and clinging to the grace given through Christ's death
and resurrection. As Christians seek to order their lives around these principles, they must
meditate upon God's plan for the future and how to make that future a reality. Finally,
Calvin proposes a few ways how each person can bring God's grace to a fallen world
and avoid abusing their roles as representatives of God to that world. This very brief text
can serve as a short introduction to Calvin's thought for any who wish to broaden their
general knowledge or set out on a path of more involved study.
