It’s amazing how much can change in a year.
For as long as I have been writing Escape to Reality, readers have been asking, “Paul, why don’t you write a commentary?” and my reply has always been, “It’s not gonna happen.”
My reluctance was based on brutal experience.
It took me two years to write a verse-by-verse commentary of Matthew 24 for a book called AD70 and the End of the World. It took nearly as long to write a commentary for Revelations 2 and 3 (Letters from Jesus).
That’s four years to cover a grand total of 102 verses.
At that pace I calculated it would take me more than 300 years to write a commentary for the whole New Testament.
So no, it wasn’t going to happen.
Except it has.
In January this year, I felt strongly impressed to give it a shot and in less than nine months we have this new thing called The Grace Commentary which now has commentary for 1,500 verses!
How did that happen?
I honestly can’t account…
