Cover of My Book - "The Sufferings of Christ are Abundant In Us"


I have just seen the cover of my book, 'The Sufferings of Christ are Abundant in Us (2 Cor 1:5): A Narrative Dynamics Investigation of Paul's Sufferings in 2 Corinthians," which will be published in May by T&T Clark.

The book is now available for pre-order. Amazon is retailing the book at US$81.80, after a 37% discount; while Dovebook is pricing it at US$95.99.

Hi KY,

I am proud of you, a maverick chinese school boy....ha!

Congratulation! Any mix feeling when you see this cover?

Paul said...

Congratulations. You should post the foreword of the book or the back cover. I am curious to at least read how you are "introduced".

You could sell autographed copies at half price (because they have been defaced! :-))LOL.

At least we know there will be a few copies sold - Malaysian seminary libraries would at least buy a copy each. Ok,ok just kidding.

But once again, congratulations and may God use this book to bless thousands upon thousands!

Hi Sceptics,
Thanks. Maverick chinese school boy?? I don't know about that. My former school teacher would take issue with you on this...

Hi Perng Shyang,
Thanks.

Mixed feelings? Probably more relieved that it is finally done after more than 2 years since I passed my viva and submitted my thesis in hardbound copies to the University.

Hi Paul,

Thanks. Err...actually there is no forward...Don't think there will be any..Haha....

But I will post the summary of the contents later when it is availble by the end of this month or next.

Selling the autographed copy at half price? Hahah...even at half price, I am not sure how many Malaysians would buy it. That would be in the region of RM230 per book. You know what Malaysians will do....

Hi Alex,
Thanks for wishes. I just feel glad that it is published and I can now move on to write on other subjects. The second book is now progressing very slowly since the semester started. I am looking forward to May where there will be a couple of weeks off for me to work on tidying up the argument of the book.
