We’re test-driving some concept art for the cover of the new AD70 book. This is exciting stuff, at least for me. But I need your input.
Which of the books below would you be most likely to pick up in a store?
“Paul, how can I pick a cover if I don’t know what the book is about?”
This book is partly about the events of AD70, but it’s mostly about Christ’s parables and prophecies of judgment. In fact, the subtitle of the book is Finding Good News in Christ’s Parables and Prophecies of Judgment. Here’s the blurb for the book:
Is the world going to hell in a handbasket? Is ours the generation that will be left behind? Are global events harbingers of the great tribulation? Such questions promote a fear and anxiety that is contrary to the hope-filled gospel of Jesus Christ.
In AD70 and the End of the World, Paul Ellis offers an alternative, gospel-based perspective of the last days. Based on an in-depth study of scripture and the forgotten lessons of history, he reveals the astonishing good news hidden within Christ’s parables and prophecies of judgment.
This book is the antidote to pessimistic prophecy. It answers questions about Judgment Day, the rapture, and the end of the age. It reinterprets dark tales of vengeance and wrath through the bright light of grace.
If you are weary of gloomy forecasts or are anxious about the apocalypse, AD70 and the End of the World will give you a confident and joyful expectation of a bright tomorrow.

I want to thank everyone who signed up as E2R patrons last month. As you know, your names are going in the ebook version of Stuff Jesus Never Said.
I did say that book would not come out for a couple of months, but things have been moving faster than expected. In fact, the ebook comes out today!
That’s right, Stuff Jesus Never Said is available right now on Kindle and PDF:
Personally, I still think the hardback version of this book is the way to go, but I appreciate it’s a little pricey and expensive to ship if you live outside of the US of A.
So if you have been waiting to read this gold-medal winning book (cough), your wait is over.
Just press the button.
