With the advent of the new year, I find myself very busy trying to finish a couple of projects. My next book, “Making Sense of the Bible” is about to be sent to the publisher, and will demand a chunk of my time in the final birthing phase. Do publishers offer epidurals? Meanwhile, I am deep into the initial writing phase of the subsequent book, “No More Monkey Business; Evolution in Crisis”. The first 12 chapters out of 19 have been written. It has involved a huge amount of research, and several more months of writing and editing awaits (it will probably be published towards the end of this year).

I’m not complaining. I am doing what I strongly believe God has called me to do in this new phase of my life. In fact, it is a great privilege to be free from the constraints of full-time employment, to be able to devote more time to this kind of ministry for God’s kingdom.

My current busyness, however, means that for the next few months I may be posting fortnightly to my blog instead of weekly. Hopefully this will not last for too long.

In the meantime, I have a favour to ask. It has now been a little over 6 months since my first book, “Finding God”, was published. If you have read and enjoyed it, would you consider writing a review on one of the many online book websites?

I am regularly receiving positive feedback via email. Here are just a few examples from recent emails:

  • I thought this was a road directory. I want my money back!
  • Can you get some milk and cat food on your way home?
  • Thank you so much for your book. I’ve been using it to line the bottom of the budgie cage.
  • Please stop sending me emails or I will call the police.
  • I didn’t realise God was missing.
  • Apart from your name, I disagreed with everything you wrote.
  • The high point of the book was the title. It went downhill rapidly after that.
  • Congratulations, you have won $250,000 dollars! Please send your bank account details and bank passwords to our Nigerian office.

How wonderful it is to receive such affirming feedback. I just wish my wife would stop sending them to me.

Jokes aside, if you have been helped or encouraged by the book, why not write a review somewhere out there on the web? You can post a review on Koorong Books, Amazon, Book Depository, Goodreads, or any number of other websites.

I pray that 2019 will be, for you, a wonderful year of growing closer to God and serving him.
