3rd Book in 3 Weeks
It will be my first commentary, a first on the Gospel of John, even if it is only from chapter 1 to 12. It is already 236 pages long and I know if the book is any bulkier, my targeted audience may lose interest. It is tough to create a reading culture within the Malay-speaking church, but I pray that there will be such hunger for God’s Word that my commentary might just serve as an avenue to satisfy the hungry souls as Jeremiah said, “Where your words are found, they are the rejoicing of my heart.” As with many things, it is a venture of faith, publishing two books so close together with much money invested, but with little certainty that even half of it will be recovered in sales. But the aim is to bless the Church. I have already received two excellent feedback on my Departure Points thus far and I pray that John’s commentary will even be a greater blessing to the edification of the Church of Christ.
