Book Review: Scribbing in the Sand by Michael Card

Posted: January 11, 2022 in Uncategorized

I got this book from my church library and loved it so much that I bought my own copy just so I could “mark it up.” Michael Card is a legendary musician and songwriter in the wold of Christian music so I was really interested in what he had to say to Christian artists. Building off of Jesus writing in the dirt from the story of the woman caught in adultery, Card gives a fantastic guide book for artists in the church. I read this as part of studying for my dissertation and my biggest concern is that I may have quoted it too much. This is truly great stuff. Probably my favorite chapter of this book was his Letters to Christian Artists chapter, in which Card compiled a group of letters written to artists by experts in the field. The insights in that chapter alone were worth the price of the book. This is a book I will reference regularly. It’s a great read. Pick it up!
