The Dualism of Eternal Life (subtitle: A Revolution in Eschatology)
Stephen Speers Craig
For the back cover: Little is known about Stephen Speers Craig. He was a pastor, born in 1855, but his date of death is unknown. He wrote and self-published the present work in 1916. From it we know that Rev. Craig was premillennial in his position on eschatology and that he lectured in theology at the Rochester Bible Training School in Rochester, NY.
For the back cover: Virtually all evangelical Christians would say that eternal life is a gift from God received by faith alone in the finished work of Jesus Christ. Why, then, do several Bible verses refer to eternal life as received by works (e.g., Matt. 19:16, 21, 29; Mark 10:17, 29-30; Luke 10:25; 18:18, 30; John 4:36; 6:27, 54, 58; 12:25; Rom. 2:7; 6:22; Gal. 6:7-8; 1 Tim. 6:12, 19; Jude 21)? Craig demonstrates that the term “eternal life” is used in two different manners in the New Testament – sometimes as a GIFT, received by faith alone – and other times as a REWARD for works. Context determines in which manner the term is being used. He also explains the correct meaning of “eternal life,” which has been mistranslated for centuries in most English Bible versions. The eschatological ramifications of this truth are revolutionary, thus Craig’s subtitle: A Revolution in Eschatology.
Book cover type
Other color requirements
I am open on colors. Be creative. "Eternal Life" is vibrant, so use colors that convey this vibrancy.
Think about the title: The Dualism of Eternal Life. I would like to see the term "Eternal Life" somehow emphasized in double. I thought of a reflection in water, but that may not be best. Use your creativity and show me how to portray the term "Eternal Life" dually. (Please do NOT use yin/yang or new-age symbols).
What to avoid
This is a serious religious book written in 1916 that I am re-publishing (it is in the public domain). It will be read by numerous Bible students who want to learn more about what is coming in the future (the end times). So the cover must be serious and reflect the nature of the book's subject matter. I had book covers designed by 99Designs for two other projects that are now on Amazon. Here are links so you can see what I like: https://www.amazon.com/Greek-Word-Aion-Aionios-Translated-Everlasting-Eternal/dp/0996359664/ref=sr_1_2?dchild=1&keywords=aion+aionios&qid=1630194057&sr=8-2 https://www.amazon.com/After-Thousand-Years-Glorious-Dispensation/dp/0996359680/ref=sr_1_1?dchild=1&keywords=after+the+thousand+years&qid=1630194094&sr=8-1
It all began with a design brief.
A quick, interactive guide helped them understand their design style and captured exactly what they needed in their book cover.
Designers across the globe delivered design magic.
Jim Hollandsworth collaborated with designers to refine their ideas
When design entries come in, you can rate them so designers know what you’re looking for in your logo design.
99designs has great collaboration tools so you can pinpoint and capture your ideas
And then… they selected 2 winners!
Along the way, they met lots of talented designers…
We think contests are a super fun way to get design.
