application artwork

Postby par00036 » Fri Nov 19, 2010 2:30 pm

I'm interested in creating an application, not affiliated with the church, but has religious overtones. I'm interested in enhancing it with artwork that is popular in the church. I don't want to violate any copyright, but i don't know where to start to get permission to use the images.
Can anyone share with me how to obtain the correct permission? if it helps I'm interested in using pics like Jesus The Christ and other pics like Jesus feeding the lambs, etc. Maybe even other pics from the gospel art kit.

thanks,
Jon

I guess we're going to get used to saying this as well: The answer is in the handbook. :D
