About the Author:

In a career that spans 30 years, Michael Card has recorded over 31 albums, authored or co-authored over 24 books, hosted a radio program, and written for a wide range of magazines. An award-winning musician and performing artist, he has penned such favorites as "El Shaddai," "Immanuel" and many other songs. He has branched his ministry beyond music and written numerous books, including A Sacred Sorrow, A Violent Grace, The Parable of Joy and Sleep Sound in Jesus (a children's book). He has also written the Biblical Imagination Series, with a book and accompanying music CD for each of the four gospels. A graduate of Western Kentucky University with a bachelor's and master's degree in biblical studies, Card also serves as mentor to many younger artists and musicians, teaching courses on the creative process and calling the Christian recording industry into deeper discipleship. Card lives in Tennessee with his wife and four children.

Review:

"With dramatic and cinematic lyrics and riviting prose, we are eyewitnesses, Scripture becomes flesh for us to see and feel and touch, to steph into and experience. Much like Mel Gibson's movie, The Passion, Card's book and CD stop us in our tracks and ask, even demand, a selah. To read through the book and share the life and death of Christ with others during Lent, and then experience the CD as a musical, during Holy Week, would be a truly rewarding and deepening journey for a community of believers." (Andrea Hunter, Worship Leader, March/April 2013)

"Always the careful teacher, Michael Card draws the church back to a much-needed look at the suffering Savior. Like me, you will gaze with astonished reverence at the One who endured such violence, then bow in humble adoration, crying, 'Lord, make me more like you.'" (Steve Green)

"What Michael Card sings at this level I most need: The inaudible strains of warm truth that fly from heart to heart and nourish the soul where all too few have fed. Loving God is hungry work and only those who hunger enough can feed the rest of us. Michael Card knows how to set such a table." (Calvin Miller)

"Dietrich Bonhoeffer defined 'cheap grace' as grace without the cross. In these scalding pages, Michael Card touched my heart with the love of Christ crucified and led me to an unprecedented appreciation of undeserved grace." (Brennan Manning, author of The Ragamuffin Gospel)

"Every encounter I've had with Michael Card has brought me closer to Jesus. I'm confident that this book will do the same." (Max Lucado)
