How to Write a Theology Book #2 - Revisions

If you want to write theology, revision is in order.

I have page proofs from the publisher for my book Being Promised:  Theology, Gift, Practice, so I think I can look back at the drafts.

Here's the lowdown:

Revisions of each of the five chapters:

chapter 1:   5 drafts
chapter 2:  10 drafts
chapter 3:  13 drafts
chapter 4:   6 drafts
chapter 5:  10 drafts

After putting it into one whole book:  10 more drafts.

Size of file that contains paragraphs and sentences eliminated:  301kb.

Revise, revise, revise.
