The Value of a Book Trailer for Christian Authors

Have you heard about the recent controversy involving Saddleback Church and its retired founding pastor, Rick Warren, due to the church’s decision to ordain women as pastors? This action led to the Southern Baptist Convention (SBC), one of the largest Protestant denominations in the U.S., formally expelling Saddleback Church. 

According to the SBC, this expulsion was due to Saddleback going against the convention’s recent statement of faith, which does not support women in pastoral roles. The controversy has put a spotlight on and broadened the debate about the role of women in the church and the interpretation of Christian doctrines.

At FrontGate Media, we’ve had the privilege of working with Niamh Middleton, former primary school teacher turned author and lecturer on theology & philosophy, to promote her book, Jesus And Women, which provides an insightful and Biblical perspective on the truth about what the Bible says about women.

FrontGate Moving Pictures created a captivating book trailer for Jesus and Women as part of our overall communication strategy for Niamh, which includes Public Relations, Social Page Management, Email Newsletter Management, Marketing, and Advertising. 

What Is a Book Trailer and Why Should Christian Authors Use Them?

A book trailer is akin to a movie trailer, but for books. It’s a creative video designed to introduce a book and stir interest among potential readers.

As a Christian author, a book trailer can help engage your target audience on a deeper emotional level. The use of impactful visuals, coupled with compelling narratives, can evoke strong emotions that resonate with your viewers’ faith. 

Additionally, book trailers can be shared across various social media platforms, email campaigns, and more, extending your reach and visibility. They serve as an effective tool for generating anticipation and excitement around a book release, thereby boosting sales. 

Are you a Christian author looking to connect with your audience and promote your book in a new way? Engage FrontGate Moving Pictures and our 4-time Emmy Award-winner, Steph Carse, to create a compelling, movie-grade quality book trailer for your current or upcoming book release.
