John Calvin: A Pilgrim’s Life

Calvin3From the Introduction:
“Calvin never spoke of life as something fun, and his own wasn’t. Many of his followers concluded that there shouldn’t be any fun in life, and here they misunderstand him. Calvin runs the race of this life, falling all the while, picking himself up again and again, and looking forward to the finish, which he calls “the reflection of the life to come.” The race wears him out, often seeming to  pointlessly bring him back to the place he started, and yet there remainssomething to look forward to. Calvin stays on the course in faith that the God who makes the race so difficult also secures the runner’s finish. Attimes, Calvin understands nothing of his God, but still hews closely to him and calls others to do the same. Without that God, life is nothing.”
