Malaysian author interviewed by Christian China Daily about maiden book written amid Covid-19 pandemic. In his pioneering effort, author Ivan Tan of the book, “What If You Could Complete Jeremiah in 8 Weeks?”, was asked about the lessons based on the Book of Jeremiah, how events during Jeremiah’s time correlate to the Covid-19 era and what it takes to meditate upon God’s word.
Cyberjaya, Malaysia, 1 October 2021 – Fresh from the release of his first book on 1 September 2021, author Ivan Tan has just been interviewed by China Christian Daily (hereafter “CCD”), one of the leading Christian media portals in China. The interview is available here via this link, https://bit.ly/3D39VvD.
“What If You Could Complete Jeremiah in 8 Weeks?” is the author’s compilation of devotional reflections based on the 52 chapters of the Book of Jeremiah. The book was written at a time when the world was gripped by Covid’19’s catastrophic devastation and when no vaccination was ready for any nation to combat the virus.
In the interview, Ivan was asked about the rationale behind the book, the central message from the Book of Jeremiah, the correlation between Jeremiah’s time and the Covid-19 pandemic, marketplace examples that are relevant to the 21st century and also his personal message for fellow believers in China.
Delighted about the interview, author Ivan who is a Partner at Rightwiz Sdn Bhd, a content writing and publishing company, said, “It is definitely an honour to be interviewed by China Christian Daily because it is still early days for my book.
“It is my sincere hope that through this interview the news of this book will travel further, reach more people and inspire them about life, the Christian faith and God.”
Penned right from the first chapter in February 2020, Ivan credits the possibility of completing the book to the lockdown where the restrictions proved a fertile ground for writing the entire volume based on the biblical text. He also affirmed that beyond just the stereotypical connotations of love and forgiveness, “God has more to say to us”.
When asked if the book will still be relevant now that Covid-19 restrictions are lifted around the world, Ivan indicated that because the book talks about human characters such as “redemption, restoration, servanthood, as well as warnings about the prosperity gospel, his power, his promises, discernment, purpose, discipline, commitment, loyalty, legacy”, this makes the book a timeless literature that can last through the different seasons of life.
“What If You Could Complete Jeremiah in 8 Weeks?” is a book of the pandemic era and is available in paperback and e-book on Amazon at https://amzn.to/3BTTEJR.
