New Bible in print in October 2018

The Growing in Faith Bible is being printed as of this writing, and can be pre-ordered through its publisher, Concordia Publishing House (where you can take a look inside) or through Amazon.

They say it should ship around October 16, 2018.

Concordia commissioned 125 illustrations from me, and the pictures are paired with summaries of the stories. The entire bible text is nearby, so readers can go back to the Source.

I've shared some of these images with little children -- some pre-readers interested in pictures containing sheep or ships --  along with international students, friends from church, colleagues and family members. Thank you all for your feedback along the way.

The illustrations often spark memories of the accompanying stories, and young and old can retell the before, during and after of each image.

And again, if they're not sure about a certain part, or have a question about why the artist put that particular detail in, they can check the Source. I have tried to be faithful to that.
