Scribbling in the Sand Reviews

  • Rebekah Choat

    Best known as a singer/songwriter, Michael Card is also a gifted author and teacher. In Scribbling in the Sand, he looks at a familiar narrative from an imaginative perspective and highlights aspects of the story that we may not have seen before.A woman caught in adultery was brought before Jesus. “What do you say we should do with her?” the good men of the town asked. His response was not any of the answers they had anticipated. He didn’t come down emphatically on the side of the law. Nei [...]

  • Tim Hoiland

    In his excellent book Scribbling in the Sand: Christ and Creativity (InterVarsity Press), singer, songwriter and Biblical scholar Michael Card makes the connection between art and the biblical prophets, emphasizing the generally overlooked spiritual significance of the imagination.“Through the prophets we come to understand that God is out to recapture all that we are or can hope to be,” he writes, “not just the mind or the heart but the mind of the heart, the heart of the mind, which is t [...]

    I loved Michael Card’s Scribbling in the Sand: Christ and Creativity. An excellent and inspiring set of essays on how to be a Christian artist, this book gave me a lot to think about as a writer. While Card doesn’t think that Christians should use their art (music, writing, painting, what-have-you) as a bludgeon for evangelism, he does have unique insights into how being a Christian changes how you’re an artist.

    This was the book that I made people read at my Visual Journaling workshop in 2005. It is a very good book. It was the first time I realized that in the Bible it actually says that Jesus kneels down and scribbles in the sand, before he decides what to do with the woman the people want to stone. Now I'm very used to the idea, so it doesn't have the power it did in 2004. I've gotten to hear Michael Card sing, play piano, and speak at Calvin College. He makes you cry. He is very true. I like that h [...]

    I want to be creative. I really do. Professionally, I work as a neuropsychologist, which is typically not known for its creative side. But I desire to love God completely--not only with my mind, but with all of who I am. Michael Card has been a wonderful guide for me, helping me to open up my soul and to be awake to the wonder of life. Even if you don't consider yourself an artist, I would strongly recommend this book.

  • Marion Hill

    A nice book about the role of Christ and Creativity. A good read!

  • Irina Trancă

    Truly inspiring and Christ-centered. Michael Card's book really directs your focus and thoughts toward God and Jesus and makes you want to know Him and to love Him and to obey Him more.

  • Christina

    Fantastic thoughts about the value of creativity to a follower of Christ. The kind of thoughts I hadn't heard in a lifetime of sermons.

  • Joe Oaster

    Michael Card is a gifted song writer and teacher. He really digs into the creativity of the soul and how our creativity honors the living God. Honestly the best chapter in the book was not written by him, it was a collection of letters to young artists. I found those letters extremely encouraging and am passing along this book to a young artist I know with specific instructions to read that chapter.

  • C.T. Casberg

    A fairly basic evangelical self-help/inspirational book, this one aimed at Christians with aspirations to the creative arts. Decent for its inclusion of letters written to the generic Christian artist by the likes of Rookmaaker and Makoto Fujimura, but otherwise, eh. Evangelical non-fiction is all pretty samey, and this one is no exception. I'd rather read commentaries by Malcolm Guite.

  • Kate

    Easy to read & understand. Challenging to live by.

  • Martie

    One of the best books on creativity I have read. Very inspiring! Bought it as gift to various friends.

  • Lydia Howe

    I didn't connect with this book as much as I thought I would, hence the three stars. I have a feeling that if I were to re-read it I would up the rating to four stars. I've enjoyed Michael Card's music for my entire life and had the privilege of attending one of his concerts and meeting him in person last month. He, and his music, have been a huge inspiration for me as a novelist. Despite having spent almost half of my young life deep in the world of writing, I've rarely read any books on the cr [...]

  • Rick

    Generally good and at times excellent where this Christ-centered book resonated strongly for me. Short of 5 stars only because it didn’t offer actionable information or lessons except through the addendum that addressed this critique as a sort of literary afterthought. Loved the personal references to stargazing and God's creation.

  • Sarah

    I enjoyed this more than I expected! It was recommended to me, so I got it w/o knowing really what it was about. I marked up my book and will have to go back and review my notes and maybe blog about this one.

  • ByTheFire

    I love the author's emphasis on the spirituality of creativity.cially noteworthy are the letters at the end of the book. This book can wait patiently on the nightstand for weeks and deliver an inspirational jolt when opened again. I would want this book if stranded on a dessert island.

  • David Ryan

    Really appreciated this book by Michael Card. Took it with me for my vacation devotionals and got so much out of it that really spoke to my heart. Great insights on the creative process and the encouragement to "gaze upon the beauty of the Lord".

  • Hannah

    A fairly quick listen, though plenty to chew on. The Calvin Miller / Phil Keaggy collaboration may be my favorite part.

  • Christopher M.

    A very interesting book about art and worship in the life of a follower of Christ. A must-read for Christians involved with or interested in art.

  • Adam

    The best book on Christian aesthetics I've ever read, from a devotional standpoint. Not the most profound or dense, but definitely the most impactful.

  • Michelle

    Michael Card writes about creativity. Some interesting things to say, but not the best written or most theologically sound book I've ever read.

  • Shannon

    A fresh approach to this subject matter, focused mainly on the necessity of imagination in spiritual life.

  • Letitia

    This is a must-read for any Christian artist, particularly the letters to artist in the back of the book.

  • Avril Vandermerwe

    I love this book so much, I will read it again and again. It is a beautiful and inspiring look at creativity as an expression of relationship with our Creator.

  • Tim

    As a non-artist, I found this helpful personally and it helped me in better understanding the artists in my church.
