When was the last time you thought about being pious? The word tends to make us think of having a “holier-than-thou” attitude. But this negative view strays far from piety’s beginnings. Joel Beeke reclaims the Reformers’ vision for an attractive piety rooted in the knowledge of God and our union with Christ. Focusing on both mind and soul, he offers practical ways to cultivate a vibrant piety, helping you grow in Christlikeness and in your reverence and love for God. Bring harmony between your doctrine and practice, and bring glory to God as he cultivates the fruit of the Spirit in your life.
Joel R. Beeke (PhD, Westminster Theological Seminary) is president of Puritan Reformed Theological Seminary, where he also serves as professor of systematic theology and homiletics. He is a pastor of the Heritage Netherlands Reformed Congregations in Grand Rapids, Michigan, and the author of several books, including Truth That Frees, The Quest for Full Assurance, and A Reader’s Guide to Reformed Literature.
“A summary of piety that is both biblically rich and theologically precise, written by one whose life consistently demonstrates it.” — Derek W. H. Thomas, Professor of Systematic and Historical Theology, Reformed Theological Seminary, Atlanta
