Glenn Bridges, author of "Dreaming with the Angels" scoured more than 31,000 images to find the precise one for the book's cover.


Some say a picture paints a thousand words, but for Glenn Bridges it took scouring more than 31,000 images to find that precise picture.

Bridges, 53, of Bluffton, has released his first book – “Dreaming with the Angels: The Life of Jesus Told by God’s Special Agents”. And the fact that a strong cover photo is crucial for a first-time author wasn’t lost on him.

“The message inside the book is far more important to me than the cover,” said Bridges. “But with thousands of new titles being introduced every year, the cover needed something that draws a reader’s attention long enough to want to see what’s inside. Without that, it might be a lost cause.”

Dreaming with the Angels caters to young readers with a theme of God’s use of angels and dreams in foretelling, celebrating, warning and sharing the birth, death, resurrection and ascension of his Son, Jesus Christ. Its composition is presented in a brief, factual, chronological and scripture-based approach on about a sixth-grade level as to why Jesus came to this planet in human form more than 2,000 years ago.

The cover photo highlights a young, adorable, bright-eyed, blonde-headed kid with angel wings and a charming smile resting on a cloud.

The back cover features an angel figurine sleeping in a bed of daffodils – another ThinkStock image – while the nine interior photos were taken by Bridges.

The 48-page paperback (and e-book format) also includes The Plan of Salvation, The Meaning of Believer’s Baptism, The Ten Commandments, The Lord’s Prayer, and The Books of the Bible. It can be used as a supplement for students attending private Christian academies and home schooling. The book’s release is Oct. 20 and retails for $17.45 soft cover and $3.99 e-book at www.crossbooks.com. The book is available at Amazon and Barnes & Noble and other websites for lower pricing.
