About two months ago, a man contacted me from Austria. He needed a translation of some documents because he is trying to claim his Italian citizenship, which will allow him to continue his missionary work in Europe. In the course of our transaction, I discovered that he is the principal of an International Christian School in Vienna, and I introduced my book on John Calvin to him. He liked it so much that he ordered four more copies.
Just today, he sent me his school’s newsletter with a picture of the book being offered to the school librarian. You can see the Austrian band on the same page.
I am really amazed and humbled by all this. I am glad that the book sells well because good sales will prompt the publisher to continue the series, and I believe the series is absolutely needed. But if the books are well done it’s all because of God’s providence and mercy in spite of myself – as my publisher and some of my friends can attest.
