'Of Making Many Books There Is No End'

16:26



I've been doing a lot of writing recently, although evidently not on this blog.  The reason is that I've been working on a book. I'm writing an exposition of the Tenets of the Apostolic Church.  It's not a systematic theology (far from it; although I hope [D.V.] to write one eventually), but it is a brief introduction to some important doctrines. I'm about 2/3 of the way through writing now.

The reason I mention it is that I would very much value some prayer for the project. So, if you'd like to pray, I'd be most grateful.  You could pray that I wouldn't be distracted from matters of first importance.  I want this to be a balanced book (in the sense that more attention is focused on the most important doctrines), thus there are 6 chapters on Tenet 3 (the person and work of Christ) as opposed to 1 chapter on Tenet 9 (church government).  Pray also that I would be able to explain things clearly. Sometimes Christians are put off doctrine because it isn't clearly explained.  Above all, pray that I would be faithful to the Scriptures and that Christ would be glorified through the writing.

Thanks for your prayers.
