On Writing the History of the American Bible Society--Update #107

Things are moving along very well with The Bible Cause: A History of the American Bible Society. Oxford University Press accepted my effort to reduce the manuscript from 203,000 words to 162,000 words.  They now tell me that readers will not need a magnifying glass to read the book.

The book will be close to 400 pages in length with twenty-four images that will be included in a glossy insert.  If all goes well, it will appear in March 2016.

The copy-editors are now working on the book.  When they are finished, I will have two to three weeks to respond to their edits and make any other changes.  Right now I am in a state of limbo, waiting for the edits to arrive in my mailbox.

Stay tuned.
