"Living for God's Glory is solid Christian truth in all its
fullness, beauty, and strength. To study what is given so
pleasantly here in these pages is to take a firm step toward
becoming a clear-sighted and well-equipped student of theology. It
will satisfy the appetite of believers, young and old. I wish I had
had such a book in my hands when I was a young believer starting
out on the journey to learn theology."--Maurice Roberts
"Living for God's Glory is a very helpful and insightful introduction to Reformed Christianity. It demonstrates that Calvinism is not narrowly doctrinal, but broad and profound, speaking to every aspect of Christian life. It will inform and inspire Christians in biblical faithfulness."--Dr. W. Robert Godfrey
"Dr. Joel Beeke has once again performed a great service for the church of the Lord Jesus Christ. This book will profit every class of reader, from the new convert to the most mature believer. Dr. Beeke's style embodies the characteristics of experiential Calvinism on which he writes: every chapter is clear and addressed to the heart. I particularly found the chapter 'Applying the Word' to be a needed word for Calvinistic preachers in our day. Buy a copy for yourself and a number to give away."--Joseph A. Pipa Jr.
"Finally--a book about Calvinism that covers the broad scope of the Calvinistic or Reformed movement. Calvinism affects the whole man: his head, his heart, and his hands. It has an intellectual or doctrinal dimension, as well as spiritual and practical dimensions. It influences not just the church but the culture. It is not confined to the Lord's Day, but impacts daily life. Calvinism is not a dead historic phenomenon, but a living view of God, man and Christ, sin and grace, time and eternity, and church and society. I hope this book will contribute to a revival of biblical, God-centered, and practical theology--that is, of Calvinism."--Pieter Rouwendal
"It was a joy to read this excellent and useful book. In this volume, Joel Beeke--one of our best ambassadors for warm, winsome, experiential, solid, orthodox, passionate, evangelistic Calvinism--introduces us to a healthy, well-rounded view of the Reformed tradition--Calvinism as it really is. It presents us with the basics of the history of Calvinism and confessionalism, as well as the mainstream Calvinistic teaching on salvation, piety, growth, the church, preaching, evangelism, marriage, family, work, politics, ethics, doxology (the idea of living all of life for God's honor--from which this book gets its title), and more. The total picture presented here will help strengthen in our time confessional, experiential Calvinism--the great, central, Reformed tradition flowing out of the best of British (Puritan and Scottish) and Dutch (Further Reformation) Calvinism."--J. Ligon Duncan III
"There seems to be a popular misconception afoot that Calvinism is an impressive intellectual structure, but that Reformed people must find resources elsewhere for practical piety. At the heart of Joel Beeke's ministry has been a burden to show the opposite conclusion, and this book has the same goal. Covering many important aspects of Calvinism, its practice as well as its faith, the book is written in a warm, pastoral, and engaging way."--Dr. Michael Horton
"This book is rooted in the conviction that Calvinism is a gospel-centered, biblical theology for all of life. Drawing from his wide knowledge of Reformation and Puritan thought, and using his gift for illustrating biblical truth, Joel Beeke shows how God's grace is glorified in the believer's mind and heart, not only in the church, but also in the world."--Philip Graham Ryken
