Red Letters Cover Part 2

Hey everyone. I cannot thank you enough for all the comments you left about the book cover. Truth is, I hated it and couldn’t stand it! Why? It didn’t say anything to me, it wasn’t what I had envisioned, and it was too simplistic. But, being the humble soul I am, (hey, it’s Lent, I’m working on my humility) I’m open to being wrong. I don’t like it, but I’m open! You had some great insight and wonderful ideas to share.

The publisher loved the comments and we are incorporating some of the changes you suggested. Some of you will no doubt be disappointed that your thought was incorporated, so I’ll apologize in advance. About 70% of the people loved the cover. As soon as we have it back from the designer, I’ll post it for you to see.


Just so you know, this book is not all about Africa. It’s about examining the life of Jesus to see what He did on earth, who He ministered to, and why certain groups of people moved His heart – like the poor, the leper, the sick, and the orphan. Then it moves into HIV/AIDS, Africa, India, Russia and what you and I can do to make a difference and be the hands of Jesus. Look back at some of my other posts containing excerpts from the book to find out more: Intro Part 1, Intro Part 2, Adanna’s Story Part 1 , Adanna’s Story Part 2.

I’ll be posting the final version of the first chapter in the weeks to come.

Good post…in the long haul it needs to be what you can also live with, because the red letters are being translated into your letters. See you in the AM.

It’s the Red Letters in the Word that moved you to decision and action…those Red Letters are the founding basis for your book. The simplicity of the Gospel is reflected in your cover…and the contents I pray will move those who do not know you nor Him, to a decision and action… to actually open the cover of The Book of Books…and read those Red Letters….in the Name of the Father, the Holy Spirit and the Son… so let it be written…so let it be done…time is of the essence…start the presses.

I was looking for Amber Rose ministries…Tom Davis musician.
But read your page when I arrived. Read five+ books a week when I can wrote one myself ….this cover is awesome… simple but powerful best of all I think the Lord would be blessed by the concept and thrilled if anyone embraced it.
