Here is an excerpt from an article about the event (read the whole article):

'The American painter, Dana Andersen, artist for the book's magnetic cover spoke beautifully about the creation of this painting, "This painting flowed through me because this book is a Divine Mandate, and it is charged with divine power and Grace. And it is not so just for me—it is a font of blessings for anyone who will partake. Do not pass by this opportunity. Take this book home with you—for this is a book that will take you home! "'
