Product Description


"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

"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

"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

"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

"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

About the Author

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.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I ordered three copies of this book, because it is very challenging and thought provoking. I intend to give two of the copies to friends who are in Leadership. Too often the Calvary Cross is not preached today, and an easy Gospel has reached many pulpits. Sadly, where this has happened, I am hearing testimonies at Baptismal services that are based on God answering their prayer for a job, or some other thing they have wanted. Conviction of sin, and the need for repentance at the Cross has almost disappeared from many churches, and I find that incredibly sad. This book teaches the importance for Christians to recognise the immense cost to our Lord, and the need for repentance for every Christian. I can hightly recommend it.
