A book without a conclusion

The book is nearly done, but the conclusion is not yet written. There’s probably a sermon illustration in that.

I’m flying through my edits on Devotional Doctrine, and have maybe half a dozen small things left to address. But one big element I didn’t include when I was writing it the first time: a conclusion.

Like many authors, I’m not great at writing these. Like many readers, I hate when they don’t appear. So that’s what I’m writing today, trying to wrap up this book—one that sat in the back of my mind for nearly 2 years before I even started it[1. Yes, that means I was thinking about it before I officially joined the Gospel Project team.].

So far, there are only five words, borrowed from C.S. Lewis:

Further up and further in.

We’ll see where it ends up.
