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.
