Christians and Book Writing

Beale_NT_Theology_CoverA distinctly Christian commendation and motivation for writing a book:

Above all, I am grateful to God for enabling me to conceive the idea for this book, building on the shoulders of others before me, and for giving me the energy and discipline to write it. It is my prayer that through this book God’s glory in some way will be more greatly manifested.

From the preface of G.K. Beale’s New Testament Biblical Theology: the Unfolding of the Old Testament in the New (Baker, 2011).
