This short book is a collection of 36 articles, originally appearing at the end of the Reformation Heritage KJV Study Bible. They are written by 28 authors and have been newly edited and enlarged by Joel Beeke, himself one of the contributors. The result is a useful manual of practical instruction on how to live the Christian life.

Each chapter covers an aspect of Christian living. They are short (generally 2-3 pages) but comprehensive, clear and practical. They cover everything from foundational doctrines, like justification and union with Christ, to practical issues, such as how to pray and read the Bible, dealing with pride, coping with criticism, practising hospitality, facing sickness and death, how to be a godly husband or wife, and many more.

The book is full of good, practical advice; for example, ‘Nine ways to help us cope with criticism’; ‘How to read the Bible’ (for example, the importance of reading it in larger chunks rather than just a few verses a day); and ‘How to be a Christ-like husband’ (worth reading several times).

This book would be ideal for a new Christian or as a gift for someone at their baptism. There is plenty of food for thought in it for older Christians too, even a chapter on how to be a Christian grandparent.
