The publisher is Paternoster, a UK-based publisher. I’m not sure how it will work out internationally – although they often seem to team up with Eerdmans. I do like the idea of getting some review copies out to bloggers, but of course we’ll have to see what they think!

Esteban: I’m glad to hear you like it – and yes, I hope so too – I don’t really have any idea yet what the finished product will look like.
