Book Tagged

I’ve been tagged by Blue-Chi to do the following:
-Pick up the nearest book
-Open to page 123
-Locate the 5th sentence
-Post the next 3 sentences on your blog and in so doing…
-Tag 5 people, and acknowledge who tagged you.
I don’t normally do such “tags” but I love reading and I appreciate the Omani bloggers who visit and comment on my blog from time to time. So, why not?! 🙂
Now that we have quite a bit of free time before vacation, I bought several books at the Christian bookstore in Muscat on the weekend. The closest book to me happened to be:

Here are the sentences:
…when, lo, a very different form of doctrine started up, not one which led us away from the Christian profession, but one which brought it back to its fountain…to its original purity. Offended by the novelty, I lent an unwilling ear, and at first, I confess, strenuously and passionately resisted…to confess that I had all my life long been in ignorance and error…I at length perceived, as if light had broken in upon me (a very key phrase, in view of what we will see), in what a sty of error I had wallowed, and how much pollution and purity I had thereby contracted.
The section that is a quote from is the one on John Calvin. The back of the book reads (on Calvin), “The majesty of the Gospel so captivated Calvin that he bequeathed to us a legacy of God-entranced preaching that has resonated throughout 500 years of Christian history. Likewise, he opens our eyes to the pure delight of declaring, receiving, and acting upon the Word.”
