Pastor Rich Wilkerson, Jr. who has been known as the pastor who performed the wedding of Kanye West and Kim Kardashian, recently revealed to Rapzilla why he chose Kanye to design the cover for his book Sandcastle Kings: Meeting Jesus in a Spiritually Bankrupt World
Pastor Rich who is also friends with Mr. West told Rapzilla that the rapper is a very influential artist, and that’s one of the reasons he chose him to illustrate the cover of his book.
“I think the content of the book is what I believe to be life changing – the greatest message in the world, which is the gospel. it’s not my message, it’s Christ’s message and we’re just carriers of it but because the content is so rich, I wanted to make sure the cover had some sort of pull in. I wanted it to be great,” Wilkerson said to Rapzilla.
“The church throughout history has always called upon some of the world’s greatest artists in their time period whether they were believers, non-believers, whether they agree with their message or not,” he continued. “And I just feel like for 2016, Kanye West, whether you like him, love him, hate him, it wasn’t about endorsing his lifestyle, he’s a very influential artist.”
