All of those hours that I had blocked out for publishing would be redirected toward the twenty hours each week I’d need to pour into my degree.
My plan failed. Colossally.
Since being accepted at Duke, I’ve published 35 articles in the Lexham Bible Dictionary, ranging in length from 500 to 2,500 words. And I’m contracted to write five 4-page articles for Bible Study Magazine (circulation, 30,000), each 2,500 words in length.
The first article arrived in the mail today. It studies the first half of the book of Habakkuk. The second article, coming out in January, will complete Habakkuk. The next three will study Philippians.
But I have finally come to my senses. Last week I turned down three publishing offers.
Tomorrow I will close the books on the fourth semester of my doctoral degree. One more semester followed by a 70,000-word dissertation. Next week my second Philippians article is due. Only one more contracted article to write after that!

This handsome hardback set is the repackaged Quicknotes Simplified Bible Commentary Series. I just bought this new set myself a couple of weeks ago, and I was impressed by the quality of the new format.
I contributed to volumes 5, 11, and 12. The commentary is designed especially for the layperson who wants to understand the Bible better or the Sunday School teacher who wants to be prepared for class.
As the saying goes: “Hurry while supplies last!”
