The Book Cover


Recently I was invited to attend the Upper Room book department’s cover selection meeting. The committee is made up of the staff from the books, marketing, and production departments. The covers are evaluated and then a final cover is chosen.

I had asked for us to consider photographs by Nashville photographer Paul Schatzkin who has some amazing photographs from the U.K. We often use Paul’s images in Alive Now magazine.

I really like the final cover. Can’t wait until I see it in print. What do you think?

Christ Beside Me, Christ Within Me is a collection of blessings written in the Celtic style. The book will be published by Upper Room Books in early spring, 2016.

  1. Stunning and inviting cover! Cannot wait to engage your Celtic writings in this book (2016? 😦 . ). I have so enjoyed meeting & following John Philip Newell, now you, my friend…how good is that?!
