What Others are Saying

One of our greatest accomplishments was being the original publisher for The Passion Translation, translated by Dr. Brian Simmons, which, in just four years’ time, has turned into a multi-million dollar project and has now found its home in one of the largest publishing houses in the world. The Passion Translation received endorsements from people such as Bill Johnson, who said, “The Passion Translation is truly alive, constantly unveiling the heart of a loving Father. It is the most exciting thing to happen to Bible translations in my lifetime,” and Dr. Che Ahn, who stated, “Reading this translation will enlighten your heart, mind, and spirit as you are summoned into the essence of the Man, Christ Jesus’ undeniable love for you. I highly recommend this new Bible translation to everyone.” Brian was recently featured on Sid Roth's show "It's Supernatural." The lead translator for The Passion Translation recently said about our involvement with the project,

"We are so grateful to the expertise and blessing that 5 Fold Media has been to us! We launched our first title with them in 2010 and have found Andy and Cathy to be nothing but professional, kind publishers that will help guide your way as an author. The Passion Translation was launched by the skill of the Sanders. We will be forever grateful for the years we spent with their publishing company. 5 Fold Media is one of the best; you can trust them to lead you on the right path."


Another accomplishment that we are happy to share with you was producing the first book by Pastor John Carter. This project was forwarded by Pastor A.R. Bernard and received endorsements from best-selling authors Phil Cooke, Rick Renner, and Tony Cooke. The book, The Transformed Life, released in 2012 and later into Spanish and Russian versions, is making an impact and has been featured on television shows such as TBN and local networks. He became a Fox News contributor shortly after the book was released. He stated about us,

"5 Fold Media was the launching partner that I needed to bring The Transformed Life into reality. This team worked diligently and with integrity to help me, a new first time author, to bring my words and vision into manifestation through a book that I am proud of and continues to help hundreds of people and dozens of churches around the world. Now, with Harrison House Press, our book will experience a fresh birth of life and marketing that will put it into 2,500 church bookstores around the world. None of this would have been possible without the partnership and education I received from Andy and Cathy. I will always look upon our launching with 5 Fold Media as a divine partnership that brought my vision into manifestation."


"5 Fold Media is an amazing publishing company. They did more than I could have imagined in publishing my book. The best thing I love about their work is their cover design for my written work. They are very personable and the people at this company really helped me to understand many of the misconceptions that I had in the publishing arena. They are really good at what they do. It was the best choice for me, and I would recommend them to others as well."

"It’s rare to find people in any industry who are radically committed to leading with both uncompromisable integrity and excellence. Andy Sanders is one of those people. With great enthusiasm I am thrilled to recommend Andy and his team to you."

John Burton, Charisma Media Contributor and Author


"As a first time author, Andy and Cathy Sanders’ skillful guidance took the mystery out of each step of the publishing process. Their videos, outlines, and step-by-step instructions were easy to follow and properly prepared me for my new career as an author and public speaker. My next two books are in process, and the knowledge I gained from working with 5 Fold Media is directly the cause of the success I am enjoying now and for years to come."

Robert J Coleman Jr, Author and Operations Manager for Windstream Communications


"My initial interface with 5 Fold Media was through its website. It was a comprehensive and accurate representation of a company that would soon become the publisher of my first book. Andy, Cathy, and the 5 Fold Media team allowed me to have an active role in the publishing process while educating me as a new author. As an active participant, they made it easy for me to understand the rationale for specific policies and procedures that governed their company. Ultimately, the finished product was a reflection of their unique expertise, superior knowledge of the industry, and a passion for the work of God's Kingdom on earth."

Stephanie R. Miller, Speech Therapist and Author


"I have faith in the system God has given Andy and Cathy and the faith He has given them both along the way."

Greg Bogart, Itinerant Minister, FL


"If you are a Christian author looking for a publisher with integrity, professionalism, and excellence that will care about your development as a writer as much as your book, look no more! I wouldn't publish with anyone else!"

Kathy Dolman, Author


"5 Fold Media has been a tremendous help to me as a first-time author. They have helped and guided me through the publishing process and I learned so much. I had some ideas about the book, and they had ideas, and it all came together beautifully. It was a very positive experience to work with 5 Fold Media. They did an excellent job. I can highly recommend their professional service for any of your publishing needs."

Hermie Reynolds, Author


"5 Fold Media was purely an answer to prayer. I felt God's call to write a book to a generation of college students, and the task overwhelmed me. I was praying for a 'coach' and God sent me these guys. I needed the expertise and clear guidance from a group that has played the game for awhile. I than, could go back to the business of writing, knowing my '5 Fold Family' had my back. I am forever grateful for them and to be honest, it would have been impossible for me to do this without them. Thank you Andy and Cathy, I owe you so much!"

Barb Ylitalo, Author


"My lifelong dream was to sign with a publisher. Andy Sanders from 5 Fold Media has helped me reach that goal! After being rejected more times than I can count from publishers Andy sat down with me and gave me steps, advice, principles, and hope. This year I signed on with a traditional publisher. Thank you Andy!"
