The Other Side of Calvinism

My first book is 30 years old this year, as is the business I started to publish it: Vance Publications. The first edition of The Other Side of Calvinism was published in 1991. It was about 475 pages in a 5.5 x 8.5 paperback format. The writing was somewhat rough and the font used was a poor choice (I typeset the book when desktop publishing was in its infancy). The book met a need, and sold very well. A re-typeset second printing was issued in 1994.

After many years of research and re-writing, an 800-page, 6 x 9, hardcover revised edition was published in 1999. The fifth printing of this book was done in 2014. Year after year, this is always my best-selling book. I am almost out of books, and will need to do a sixth printing soon. About 10 or so years ago, I actually thought about doing a third edition, but had so many other things to write that I figured if it wasn’t broke, don’t fix it.
