The Ancient Path: Old Lessons from the Church Fathers for a New Life Today

John Michael Talbot, Mike Aquilina

People often imagine that the Church Fathers looked like their icons and smelled of incense, heroic figures wrapped in fine liturgical vestments of silk and lace, engulfed in billows of smoke from their golden censers. Yet, truth be told, even in their writings they resemble more the tattered cloak of Jesus or the dusty sweat-soaked habits of the early Desert Fathers and Mothers. Theirs is an ... read more

This was my first time working with a cover designer. I had a rough idea of what i wanted. Kristen took that idea and made an amazing cover. When it was finished I couldn't stop looking at it. I am really pleased with the whole experience. I would highly recommend Kristen to anyone.

Kristen was both personable and professional. An excellent communicator and she went the third mile with me when I changed the title of the book and needed a new image for the cover. I could not be more pleased with the cover she designed. She will be my go-to professional the next time I need a cover.

WOW!! Just got my first book back from the publishers and it looks amazing!! Kristen made the process seamless. Her choices of book covers were inspired. She was very attentive to detail and the book reads easily. I can't recommend her enough, and I plan on using her for any books I may write in the future. Thank you!

All of my fears were put to rest with our first interaction. The final cover is phenomenal and really increased the value of the words inside the book. Kristen works fast and, when I ran into delays on...
