as well as the Facebook pages devoted to rewards fulfillment.
This is it...
If you’ve ever struggled to explain biblical concepts, or have been looking for a new, creative way to teach theology, then this project is for you. After two years attending Welton Academy, arguably the most cutting edge Bible school going today, I realized that I needed a way to teach the revolutionary truths I was learning in a compact, practical way, especially since my work at the time was with groups in East Asia where English was not the first language. I began to draw up some simple flashcards on vector illustration software—and the idea for the Better Covenant Expansion Deck was born.
Soon it expanded from optimistic eschatology to encompass the foundational teaching on covenants, and then the awesome realities of life in the New Covenant. I printed an initial draft set and started sharing it with people, and found the response extremely positive. Moreover, it so happened that the founder and president of the academy came to minister in my area, so I gave copies to him and his teammates—they loved them! It was then that I started thinking about how to get it into the hands of people worldwide. I did a digital launch, which helped, but now the time has come to publish in proper style with professionally printed cards. For that, Kickstarter, and you, the backer, are crucial to acquiring the necessary capital to buy an initial 100+ deck run at a volume discount.
Risks and challenges
Since I am the sole writer and art designer, one potential challenge is that my computer somehow breaks down and I lose some time designing the remaining 14 cards necessary to complete all three sets. However, since all my source files are backed up in the cloud, I would be up and running again quite quickly.
One of the rewards involves an artist friend of mine, who is willing to create pieces and contribute them to five special backers. He assures me that it won't be a problem to fulfill this obligation.
If the card printer I am using somehow fails to fulfill the decks I order, it shouldn’t be a big problem as I have another company I can turn to, though their prices are somewhat more expensive.
I'm confident that the campaign will be without problems so you can get every reward you back as smoothly as possible. Thank you!
