WHAT DOES THE BOOK COVER LOOK LIKE?
CAN YOU TRANSLATE A FEW BIBLICAL VERSES INTO EMOTICONS?
CAN YOU SHOW AN EXAMPLE OF AN EMOTICON THAT YOU CREATED FOR THIS BOOK?
WHAT IS AN EMOTICON?
An Emoticon is an Image used by an Author to convey his/her Emotion to the Recipient of his/her message. Emoticons are commonly used in Text Messages and Emails. Emoticon = Emotion + Icon.
WHY DID YOU CHOOSE TO TRANSLATE THE BIBLE INTO EMOTICONS?
So, that more people would read the Bible, particularly teenagers and children.
ARE YOU GOING TO CREATE ANY ORIGINAL, BIBLE-THEMED EMOTICONS FOR THIS BOOK?
Yes. Approximately 5,000.
WILL YOU TRANSLATE THE ENTIRE BIBLE INTO EMOTICONS?
WILL YOU INCLUDE THE ENTIRE BIBLE IN YOUR BOOK?
Yes. Half of my Book will be the Bible translated into Emoticons and the other half will simply be standard Biblical Text. Every Biblical Verse will be followed by its' Emoticon equivalent. Readers will be able to go back and forth between standard written text (the Bible) and Images (Emoticons).
WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THE OLD TESTAMENT AND THE TORAH?
Torah refers to the 1st 5 books of the Bible: Genesis, Exodus, Leviticus, Numbers, and Deuteronomy—also known as the Pentateuch. The Old Testament refers to all 46 Books of the Bible written before Christ, including the first 5 that Jewish people call the Torah.
WHAT WILL KICKSTARTER FUNDS BE USED FOR?
Printing and Shipping the Book.
IF YOU DO NOT RAISE $25,000, WILL YOU STILL COMPLETE YOUR BOOK?
Yes. I am attempting to raise $25,000 to pay for the Book to be Printed/Shipped. However, if I am unable to raise enough money to Print the Book, I will simply release a Digital Version of the Book.

Risks and challenges
Since I have already started translating the Bible into Emoticons, I do not foresee any challenges. With your help, I hope to translate one of the most influential books of all time into images commonly used for text messaging so that the Smartphone Generation will be encouraged to read it...in addition to everyone else.
