Quote of the Week: Loraine Boettner

We are told that in the early days of the Church the pagans were often amazed at the calmness of the Christians in the hour of death. There was something about their noble and fearless bearing that pagan philosophy could not explain. That attitude seemed strange then, and still does, to the man of the world, for he cannot understand how it is possible for anyone to view death mildly and calmly.

– Loraine Boettner, Immortality (Phillipsburg, N.J.: Presbyterian and Reformed), 44.
