This small but important book shows how genuine biblical Reformed piety is both covenantally based and experientially lived. Piety, covenant, and experience are all interrelated in genuine and vital Christianity, and all point to Jesus Christ as the head of the covenant and the focal point of true Christian experience. This book is intended as Geoff Thomas says in his Foreword to encourage us ‘towards Reformed experiential living reflecting something of the Christian’s affection for God, loving Him with all his being, a servant truly on flame for his Lord, who cries, ‘For me to live is Christ’ – who is presenting his body as a living sacrifice to God, who like John the Baptist has an awakening ministry, as a burning and a shining light…most needful of all is a close walk with God, a consecration of all we are to all that Jesus Christ is. That must be the one thing we do as Christians, not talking about it, or longing for it, but making progress in appropriating it each day of our lives, in the pulpit, in the home… The words of this little book will help you to be a better disciple in our short and uncertain earthly pilgrimage.”

Endorsement

"This is not merely a historical lecture on Reformed piety, important as that would be, though there are such elements necessarily in these pages. Its focus is not cerebral, on our understanding. The words of this little book will help you to be a better disciple in our short and uncertain earthly pilgrimage." - Geoff Thomas
