This past Saturday night a personal goal was reached—the writing for the new book was finally done. The last quarter of the book has already gone to the editor.
Where Daniel Revisited connected dots, this new book connects dots like it was on steroids; this resulted in many new topics opening up more new topics over the course of a couple years. Finally, in the last two months though, the loose ends were finally tied up.
Now the mechanical work begins, making sure Figures, Endnotes, and text are all consistent. I plan on sending the manuscript to the publisher in April. At that time I will announce the title.
The book should be available at the beginning of summer if all goes well.
Watch for a further opening of our eyes. Where Daniel Revisited gave us four events, the new book gives us seven (or eight depending on how you count them). Where Daniel Revisited gave us the Middle East and the Islamic realm, the new book takes us to the ends of the earth. As I was finishing writing, news stories this past week out of China, Russia, and even South Africa took on a new meaning, just as news from the Middle East changed in meaning once reading Daniel Revisited.
