Reviews - What do customers think about Living the Christian Life?

Well worth the read  Apr 6, 2008
I encountered this book when my mother sent it to quite a few years ago. Her note says "I commend this book for reading , discussion, and practice"
She was correct, what another reviewer calls a pietistic emphasis on listening to God, I thought of as a valuable emphasis on what we to often forget to do. There is an emphasis on thoughtfulness, combining both Theology and practice that is valuable. Barth is influential and sometimes controversial in theological circles, and in some cases the where the authors are clearly influenced by him, the book may turn off some readers who disagree with his writing, however the use of those views is nuanced, certainly not taken to the extremes that later theologians have occasionally taken Barth's views.
The book is based on part's of Calvin's Institutes, with language changed to meet current usages, i.e. what Calvin called Piety we would now consider Spirituality.
The authors use a Biblical criticism in a Biblical Studies sense of the word where it means examination and study rather than are colloquial sense of faultfinding.
I keep returning to it for spiritual practice.

Looks Stimulating, Lacks Substance  Jan 2, 2007
In connection with a series of adult catechism (Sunday school) classes I am doing on "The Reformed Life," I picked up a used copy of Ramey and Johnson's book, "Living the Christian Life: A Guide to Reformed Spirituality." What at first looked like a great title, and what continued to impress with its table of contents, quickly turned into a boring read.

As I mentioned, the ToC looked great, and right up the Reformed pastors' alley with its four main sections: The Foundation of the Christian Life, Means of Grace for the Christian Life (excellent sacramental focus), Challenges of the Christian Life (following Calvin's threefold aspect of the Christian life as self-denial, cross-bearing, and meditation on the future life), and Responsibilities of the Christian Life.

Yet, with its Barthian view of Scripture (p. 54), critical attitude towards the Scripture it seeks to uphold (p. 59), pietistic emphasis on prayer as "listening" (pp. 47ff.), and social agenda (e.g., p. 79f., 126ff.), it quickly turned boring, shallow, and trivializing of the Christian life.

I would have been better off just reading Calvin's Institutes, Book 3, chapters 6-10, referenced above. Therefore, I am left still searching for the paradigmatic book on Reformed Christian quest continues as I must search elsewhere.
