Congrats! Is it like birthing a baby but prolonged, stressful and not so much fun?

Sceptics said...

congrat Rev..

how many free copies you are given?

Congrates, KY! Just don't get too drunk in your office while celebrating the arrival of the book! But in case you do, just don't baptize the book with champagne!

Should build a glass frame for it to be displayed on your desk or somewhere in ur office :)

Congrats! Now maybe more people can start to understand the significance of suffering in Paul. Take it to SBL Rome and sell it to the highest bidder.

Hi Alex,
Thanks for wishes...I am not sure about birthing of baby - but certainly, I am glad that it has seen the daylight and I am more than happy to move on working on other topics.

Kar Yong said...

Sceptics,
I am given a very very limited number of copies as an author.

Hi Sze Zeng,
Unfortunately, I would not dare to have champagne on campus! I only have coffee.... :-) Opps...is is coffee stain that I see there? haha

Thanks for wishes.

Kar Yong said...

Perng Shyang,
Yes, you may touch and smell it too!

Kar Yong said...

Hi Brian,
Thanks for wishes. Anyone willing to be my auctioneer in SBL Rome?

Edward Pothier said...

Congratulations on your book!

In my opinion: The "touch" and "smell" of a new book are two aspects that electronic versions can never match. Yes, I AM old-fashioned.

Mark Goodacre said...

Congratulations! We are delighted to have it in the series.

Kar Yong said...

Hi Edward,
Thanks for wishes.

Kar Yong said...

Hi Mark,
Thanks for accepting it in the series. I'm honoured.
