Recurring Authors

This page lists those authors for whom I have written three or more book reviews.

    Dear Elliot

    First of all, I would like to offer my sincerest apologies. I am a student studying in gaglardi academy in grade 12. During the quarantine, due to my laziness, I did not read a complete book, therefore, I did not finish the homework assigned by the school.So I made a huge
    mistake, I chose to plagiarize your article published in 2013 called the book review of the heavenly man. However, I felt uneasy after finishing the copy, so I want to make a solemn apology to you.
    I am a Chinese student. I have been studying hard for three years in Canada already and am admitted to the University of British Columbia. But, in the last step, I improperly chose to take a shortcut, I am very regret with that. This is my first time to plagiarize , but I believe this will and must be my last time as well!!
    At the same time, I was also punished by the school, and I deeply realized the seriousness of the matter. Therefore, I would like to express my apologies to you again. This is the most meaningful lesson in the quarantine for me. Hopefully you can forgive me, I will never make this mistake again in my whole life.

    Thank you and Jesus blessed you

      Zhensen,
      I really appreciate your note and accept your apology. Thank you so much for taking that difficult, humbling step! It shows great character to make amends for the wrong we’ve done. Praise God for His grace, far greater than our sin!
      E.T.
