For those that get it today they are also offering a free 8x10 of the Resurrection Image. (that link is courtesy of the More Good Foundation and Christ.org, I just wanted everyone to check it out).
The designers of this book have sent out my exact message. That is a very strait-forward witness of Jesus Christ. I wanted a book that leaves room for the imagination to work and for a friend or parent to be able to teach from it. Each page of the book has imagery (some of which hasn't been seen in full on the website) and scripture from the New Testament... that's it.
There is a personal-narrative preface (written by yours truly) that explains some of the more poignant moments in making Reflections of Christ. (I usually skip the part of me talking). Also, some technical information at the end of the book.
Deseret Book has thoughtfully made it very affordable... for this I'm grateful. As many as would like to have the book may get it.
On a deeper level the publishing of this book has pushed me... and leaves me feeling spiritually wrung out . It's nerve racking to send out this work without my being there to explain every little detail of it. It will become a way for people to teach their kids and friends about Jesus Christ. Other people will have the chance to interpret what's going on in the art. It becomes "Grandpa's book" or "mom's book" as kids associate the pictures with their parents and teachers stories about Christ.
Hello everyone... Recently I've partnered with a company called The Modern Photo. They offer innovative and economic options for digitizing (i.e. scanning) photographs taken on film. So, if you haven't received a mailer from them in the last week or so, and I photographed your wedding over two years ago... Drop them a line.
On a related note. They are an amazingly competent and competitively priced option for scanning all of the photos laying around your house so you can use them on your computer. I fully recommend them.
