We need a cover for Nehemia Gordon’s third book: “Shattering the Conspiracy of Silence: The Hebrew Power of the Priestly Blessing Unleashed”. Gordon is a popular author, public speaker and radio personality who has appeared on television and spoken on four continents. The cover should be inviting to both Jewish and Christian audiences but also to anyone seeking to deepen their understanding of biblical spirituality. We don't want to bias your early designs, so have fun with your creativity and brainstorming for this project. Here is the working book description, endorsements and author bio, which will appear on the back of the book:
One man’s search for answers leads him to uncover an age-old conspiracy of silence surrounding the Priestly Blessing. In the Book of Numbers, God taught this three-line blessing to the Sons of Aaron and promised, “they shall place My name on the children of Israel and I will bless them” (Numbers 6:27). Generations of scribes, rabbis, and priests colluded to keep a key part of the Priestly Blessing secret. Centuries of religious agendas and tradition have obscured its meaning. Join maverick Bible scholar Nehemia Gordon as he leaves no stone unturned in search of the truth. The clues take him from the peak of Mount Sinai to the battlefields of the Yom Kippur War. Find out what he discovered on 9/11 and venture with him down into the literal “pit of hell.” There is a great power in the original Hebrew of the Priestly Blessing, a power that has been waiting to be unleashed.
“…an outstanding book… I was challenged, encouraged, entertained, educated, liberated, and above all—blessed. You will be too as Nehemia unleashes the power of the Priestly blessing, shares his personal experiences, and shatters the conspiracy of silence!” Jono Vandor, Truth2U Radio
“Nehemia’s passion inspires and captivates, encouraging readers on a personal journey of intimacy with our heavenly Father.” Pastor Rodney Bryant, Calvary Christian Fellowship
“…a truly magnificent work—learned yet accessible, simultaneously spiritual and rational, completely engrossing, and captivating on a variety of levels (personal, theological, intellectual and historical).” Mark Gerson, founder & chairman, Gerson Lehrman Group
