"Pictures of God" is a Christian devotional book, designed for Christians to read one page per day for a year in order to nurture their personal relationship with God. This devotional book is unique because of its strongly biblical content. It presents 16 biblical "pictures" of God: God Our Creator; God Is Holy; God Forgives; God Blesses; God Our Father; God Our Husband; God with Us; God Our Shepherd; God Our Banquet Host; God Our Vinedresser; God Shares His Wisdom; God Calls and Anoints; God Our King; God Brings Justice; God Our Savior; God of All History. Each "picture" is presented through at least one of each of the following: a Bible story, a Psalm, and a prophecy. Then that picture of God is shown as completed in Jesus Christ. He is the fulfillment or culmination of all these pictures of God. Thus the book offers both a broad perspective on many biblical themes, plus detailed treatment of many Bible passages. The aim is always to help the reader come to know God better and trust Him more; to nurture their personal relationship with God. Another unique feature of this book (and of our company at large) is the interweaving of new, original hymns (Christian songs designed to be sung in church by the entire congregation). In the paper-and-ink book, these hymns are only mentioned by title and web source. In the Kindle version, these titles and their web source are active links.
What inspires you and how do you envision the design for your business?
I have no specific graphic ideas in mind, other than the main title should be prominent. Don't get corny with the "pictures" of God angle. Beyond that the designer has a free hand. I want the reader to sense how great and good and present God really is.
