Sorry for the misunderstanding. I did not mean the book. I have the book myself. I meant his Ph.D. Dissertation on Wonhyo's Commentaries on the Awakening of Faith in Mahayana which I can't access here.

I suppose his translation as part of the Wonhyo series will be based on this PhD paper. I will await that book, even though I see that Wonhyo stopped his commentary before parts 4 & 5 of the A of F.
One should refrain from biased judgments and doubting in fathoming the Buddha and the Dharma of the Buddhas. Even though a dharma may be extremely difficult to believe, one should nonetheless maintain faith in it. Nagarjuna

Now, observing with the eye of the Buddha, both the Buddha and ordinary beings are in the same liberated state. There is neither this nor that: there is only non-duality and identity.
