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) an Dutch (Further Reformation) Calvinism. --Dr. J. Ligon Duncan III: Senior Minister, First Presbyterian Church, Jackson, Mississippi
'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. Rober Godfrey: President, Westminster Seminary California, Escondido, California
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. --Dr. Joseph A. Pipa Jr.: President, Greenville Presbyterian Theological Seminary, Greenville, South Carolina

When on the subject of Calvinism, many think predestination is the only subject most Calvinist are interested in. This book proves that kind of thinking is totally false.
The authors show that Calvinism, not only consists in the five points, but also includes many subjects i.e. holiness, prayer, church government, scripture, worship, preaching, evangelism, marriage, family, work, Politics, ethics, and so much more.
If you are a Calvinist or you are just interested in what Calvinism consists of, this is the book for you.
Packed full of quotes from modern authors, past Reformers, and the Puritans; this book not only informs, it also sends you to a more in-depth study with each end note. At the end of each chapter there are discussion questions for personal or group review.
I found myself writing down a list of books to search for with each chapter. This book is on my list to read again in the future.
This is a great companion to another book by Beeke called "Meet the Puritans"
I highly recommend it to all believers and non-believers alike.
*This book was provided free of Charge by Reformed Trust in exchange for an honest review.
At the end of the day, Calvinism is God-centric, and therefore always leads to doxology.
Soli Deo Gloria! To God alone be glory!
