Check out DerrickTheReader's Book cover contest…
The Muslim Who Met The Messiah
Muslim Alinizi grew up in Iraq with a very strict Islamic upbringing. After the war broke out in Iraq, he was forced to flee the country. When his mother came out as a Christian in America, this tore their already fractured family apart. After traveling back to Iraq, Muslim decided that the best thing he could do would be to give his life for Allah. Then he learned about a God who'd already given his so that Muslim could live. Muslim is now an aspiring Pastor, and shares his testimony in Christian Churches around the United States.
This book is the story of the Muslim convert to Christianity. The goal of the book is to give readers a broader understanding of Islam, and to bridge the gap of misunderstanding between East and West.
Book cover type
Don’t know yet
I want the cover to have a heavy light/dark contrast. A young man standing in the Middle of a desert with a white Middle Eastern robe, and a red and white checkered headscarf. A dark starry sky in the background, in one corner of the sky an Islamic crescent moon shining light down on the boy. On the other corner of the sky, a cross shining light down to the other side of the boy. His features should be barely visible. Under the image I want a contrast of light Dark with the Text as well. Background should be black, with Gold letter that says "The Muslim Who Met the Messiah" under the title put the authors name, "Muslim Alinizi"
