I'm down to 10 days, friends, before my manuscript is due to IVP, and while I'm not feeling panicked, I'm feeling urgent. I've gone back to the early chapters that I wrote a couple of years ago, to supplement them with all I've learned and thought about subsequently. Right now I'm working on chapter 1 - The Extroverted Church - and I'm looking at the historical, theological, and practical causes behind the extroverted bias in the evangelical church. My original chapter was 10 pages, and I now have 25 additional pages of notes to consider and assimilate! I'm definitely feeling like a scholar today. It fits me.
If anyone out there has some thoughts they want to share on this site, I'm offering opportunities for guest bloggers since I'm a little tied up. If you have something you want to write, or have already written, email it to me and I'll consider posting it!
