Chapter Summary

This introductory chapter presents an overview of this book, which deals with the paths travelled by Evert Willemsz in order to discover his identity, to give voice to his ideals and to accomplish a life's mission. The book explores the paths he took and enables the reader to understand what made him tick. The book is divided into two sections: the first deals with Evert's youth, where we see him searching for his life's mission; the second part shows him as an adult, trying to realize his calling as a minister. In both stages Evert is a public performer, presenting himself to his contemporaries. But while in the first stage he is primarily concerned with the discovery of who he is himself, the second stage sees him engaged in trying to follow God's ways as honestly and completely as he can, as the leader of a religious community.

Keywords: Evert Willemsz; God's way; public performer; religious community
