Concept: This design milks the whole ransom note theme in communicating a timeless message of hope and order amidst pain and chaos. The graphic depicts a full-on sinister twist on the all-time mystery and depth of God's justice and love expressed in both the uncompromised demand of an unmatched ransom price and that unmistakable gale of the full payment that is his love. This masked face of the price Christ paid for all mankind gives a fresh, interesting and intriguing take on the same, timeless message believers so love and live for.
The novel is a compassionate story set in Luzon, Philippines at the time of devastating natural disasters complicated by the resilient nature of human interaction. Ransom's Fire is a snapshot of two people journeying through life falling apart and coming together with all of its questions.
