I purchased BookCoverPro, but as it turned out, I was unable to download the templates.  Does anyone have a source for book cover software that is affordable and user friendly.

Kairotic Moment

Everyone has a kairotic moment, an antepenultimate moment, in which some momentary event changes the way one thinks or creates an idea. That is what happened to me about six months ago when my wife said you need to start writing books. My background, education and research was in the area of theology and philosophy. However with about 3000 pages of notes and manuscripts that I had written over a 25 year period, I realized it was conceivable that some books may be buried in those papers. The… Continue

RETURN TO THE LORD, by Martin Murphy, ISBN 9780984570805, Published by The Theocentric Publishing Group.
The title of the book “Return to the Lord” is the theme and emphasis in this brief commentary of Hosea. “O Israel, return to the Lord your God, For you have stumbled because of your iniquity; Take words with you and return to the Lord” (Hosea 14:1). This book traces the historical events and spiritual condition of Israel prior to the fall of the northern kingdom in 722 B.C. The Old Testament congregation turned away from the true God and committed spiritual adultery by worshipping false gods. This book will be useful to pastors, Sunday Schools teachers, and laymen who want to dig deeper into the word of God.
