Questions and Answers re From Eternity To Here

As well as Frank's answers to my questions below, you can see my comments on this book, up to this point at least ,in these two posts.

1. How long did the book take to write?

Frank: I've been writing the book since 1992. Most of the book comes from spoken messages I've delivered in various conferences throughout the years, turned into a book long afterward. The actual sitting down and writing it out in its present form took about two years.

2. It certainly has the feel of something you can read out in meetings. Is that how you felt when writing it?

Frank: Yes, because the chapters were originally spoken messages I delivered, the conversational style and tone bleeds through. Personally, I've always liked reading authors who sound like they are talking to me. Watchman Nee's work is like this, because virtually all of his books were taken from transcribed messages.

We also created a free discussion guide that will help readers discuss and assimilate the content. I'm happy about that because this is not book to just read and put down. It's written in such a way that the reader will want to meditate on and digest its contents.
