It was like Christmas at the Penrith’s this evening. You see I got my complete set of Calvin’s commentaries today (all my Methodist friends collectively splutter on their caffè lattes as they read this).
Seriously though, I had borrowed Chris Woolley’s volumes on Genesis and Luke and found Calvin insightful to say the least; so had promised myself that as soon as I could scrape together the funds I would get a set.
I picked these tombs up from Good Neighbours, a bookstore located on the property of the English Reformed Church, at 172b Hyperion Dr, North Riding, Randburg, South Africa. I always find the ladies who serve there so well informed and helpful (although they’re really disdainful of Dispensationalists. *sigh* I guess you can’t have it all). I forked out R 2,119.20. Money doesn’t grow on trees so you must know this is something I really wanted.
On the way out of the store I was asked for a completed book review by the end of the week. mmm. Maybe not :).
The coffee pot has boiled; the kids are in bed; the radio is playing softly in the background and my favorite couch is unattended. An evening of Calvin on 1 Timothy awaits.
After writing this post my 5 Methodist maatjies [sic]* dropped my RSS feed because, “Let’s face it, Calvin was the Anti-Christ” and my 10 Baptist buddies did the same because “Mark Penrith is friends with Methodists!” :).
