NEW PUBLISHING PROJECT - "THE FOUNDERS BIBLE"
Michael has just completed a cover painting and a large number of inside pieces of artwork for a new Bible that will be published this summer called the Founders Bible (updated New American Standard Bible Reference Edition). It will be published by Shiloh Road Publishing, and has extensive writings from renowned historian and writer David Barton, founder and president of Wallbuilders. The additional writing and historical stories and material David has included showcase the Biblical principals that our founding fathers used to establish a new nation. I will be in Dallas at the Glenn Beck "Restoring Love" event July 26-28 at the Founders Bible booth at Cowboy Stadium. Maybe I'll see some of you there! See below for the cover painting and a few samples of the inside artwork. CLICK HERE to go the new website.
