About the cover

The front cover design is from an original painting purchased several years ago from Mark DeRaud. Mark is a self-taught artist and muralist who works out of Fresno, California.

His work adorns churches, private homes and commercial enterprises. He is active in the city, pioneering faith and the arts in the development of Fresno’s cultural arts district.

He served as an arts professor at Fresno Pacific University, and he continues as a sought after speaker on the arts and faith.
