My goal for the next year

After watching the movie “Julie and Julia” a second time, I began thinking about projects which would be appropriate for me to blog about. Reading Calvin's Institutes in its entirety has been a goal of mine for a while. Like Julie Powell, my ADD has kept me from completing this task. As I learned from reading the One Year Bible, having others hold me accountable helps me to complete a task such as this.

My goal is to read the Institutes of the Christian Religion by John Calvin in one year. I will be reading it in the morning with my coffee. The point of this exercise is not to create a new commentary on the Institutes (because I could do no better than Ford Lewis Battles) nor is it to sell the movie rights for a large sum of money (but that would be nice). I imagine that most of my posts will be ramblings of what I understand Calvin to mean, whether or not the readings are applicable to my life right now, and my general thoughts (which I hope to be relevant to the readings).

Thus, my adventure begins...
