Calvin and the Pastor/Scholar

See Philip Ryken's post on Calvin and the need for pastor/scholars here.  Here is one paragraph from the post.
"Calvin’s example as a pastor-scholar is instructive today. For pastors, his life serves as a call to work hard in ministry, giving our best efforts to understanding the Scriptures. For parishioners, Calvin’s ministry can help us understand the God-given calling of our pastors. In devoting their time to prepare for preaching, they are not serving themselves but Christ and His church."
