"And that there might be no doubt as to their separation, they have given themselves the various names of factions. They have not been ashamed to glory in that which Paul so execrates, that he is unable to express his detestation too strongly. Unless, indeed, we suppose that Christ was not divided by the Corinthians, when one teacher set himself above another (1 Cor. 1:12, 13; 3:4); and that now no injury is done to Christ when, instead of Christians, we hear some called Benedictines, others Franciscans, others Dominicans, and so called, that while they affect to be distinguished from the common body of Christians, they proudly substitute these names for a religious profession." Institutes, IV.13.14.

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0875525989, Paperback)

This practical introduction to Reformed spirituality demonstrates, in Philip Graham Ryken’s words, that "the doctrines of grace help to preserve all that is right and good in the Christian life: humility, holiness, and thankfulness, with a passion for prayer and evangelism."

Ryken continues, "The true Calvinist ought to be the most outstanding Christian—not narrow and unkind, but grounded in God’s grace and therefore generous of spirit."
