Taken from John Calvin's magnum opus Institutes of the Christian Religion, this book has inspired readers around the world for more than four centuries. This concise and practical devotional was first printed for the purpose of teaching Christians how to live out their faith. Focusing on subjects such as righteousness, self-denial, the significance of the cross, suffering, and how we should live our lives today, Calvin stresses the importance that believers cling to the grace given through Christ's death and resurrection. He proposes practical ways to bring that grace into our fallen world without abusing our roles as representatives of God.

The author was the greatest Pittsburgh Steelers coach of all time! Actually he wasn't, but that is who authored the football book Barnes & Noble shipped me instead of this work by John Calvin which I ordered (the five star rating I'm basing on his reputation). I notified B&N of their mistake. After a week of silence I emailed again, after which they asked me to provide them the received book's ISBN number. I sent them that plus a screen cap of my order which included On the Christian Life's cover photo. Pretty clear, you think? After another week of silence and then emailing again, they wrote to assure me after a thorough investigation they determined the football book I ordered left the warehouse exactly as scheduled and if I had not received my football book yet to ask a neighbor. The postman must have mis-delivered it. All B&N could say for sure is that my football book was shipped and if I didn't receive it, it isn't Barnes & Noble's problem. AFTER MORE EMAILS...they told me to return the heavy football book at my own expense. Mailing back that brick will cost almost as much as buying Calvin's work all over again. Not sure what my game plan is now (the football book talks like that, you know). If there is an ideal Christian response to all this, well -- I guess that would be taught in the book that I DON'T have, now wouldn't it?
