'The American painter, Dana Andersen,
artist for the book's magnetic cover spoke beautifully
about the creation of this painting, "This painting
flowed through me because this book is a Divine Mandate,
and it is charged with divine power and Grace. And it
is not so just for me—it is a font of blessings
for anyone who will partake. Do not pass by this opportunity.
Take this book home with you—for this is a book
that will take you home! "'
