Giving Clarity In The Confusing World Of Christian Book Publishing: A Conversation With Andy Sanders Of 5 Fold Media

By Tim Bennett

Probably the most salient point that came out of my recent discussion with Andy Sanders, owner of 5 Fold Media, the Spirit-led book publishing company out of Cicero, New York, was: publishing has radically changed since 1999 when Sanders fell in love with the book industry and worked in the executive office at Charisma Media. “According to recent statistics,” Sanders said, “Roughly 60% of all books purchased today in the U.S. are bought online, whether it‘s going to be e-books, or hard copy. That is why so many bookstores have been closing down over the years. Back then, we also received all our manuscripts through regular mail. Fast forward to today. At 5 Fold Media we do everything online.”

Sanders feels uniquely qualified to navigate would-be authors through this new changing landscape, not only from the first-hand knowledge he gained about the aspects of the book publishing process at Charisma, but also from his own success, with his professional team, of putting out 200 titles in the past eight years. He was especially thankful to be able to help his pastor, John Carter, from Abundant Life Church in East Syracuse to publish his first book, The Transformed Life (2013), which has since gone on to a bigger publishing house in Oklahoma.

Of all the books he’s published, Sanders said, The Passion Translation books (2011) by Dr. Brian Simmonsare the ones that really “put my company on the map.” He calls the books a translation, paraphrase, commentary blend of the Bible that will eventually cover every book in both the Old and New Testaments. “His first book was turned down by many publishers,” Sanders said, “but when I saw it I said, ‘Thank you, Lord, for remembering me.’ The books have now sold over two million copies. We did the first seven books and then one of the largest publishers in the world picked it up.”

Are You in the Right Relationship with Your Creator? 

 Steps To Salvation

 1. You Must Repent

You must repent of your sin and admit to God that you are a sinner. The Bible says: " ... that they should repent and turn to God, and do works meet for repentance" (Acts 26:20)

2. You Must Believe

You must believe with all your heart that Jesus Christ is the Son of God, that He died on the cross to save you and was resurrected. " ... while we were still sinners, Christ died for us" (Romans 5:8)

 3. You Must Ask

You must pray and ask our Lord Jesus Christ to forgive your sins and save you from an eternity in hell. "...with the mouth confession is made unto salvation" (Romans 10:10)

4. You Must Receive

You must pray and tell the Lord that you wish to receive the wonderful gift of eternal life. "For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord" (Romans 6:23)

5. Turn in faith to Jesus Christ

Turn in faith to Jesus Christ by praying a prayer like this:

"My Heavenly Father, I come to You admitting that I am a sinner. I repent in my sins and ask your forgiveness. I believe that Your Son, Jesus, died for my sins and was resurrected on the third day. I give my life to Jesus. I receive Jesus as my Savior and ask you to give me eternal life. I am saved in Jesus’ name. Amen."

Congratulations! Now it’s a good time to join one of the local Christian congregations, make friends with other Christians and start reading your Bible daily.

 God Bless You!
