Overview

“What Michael has done with his music, he now does with his pen. What you’ve loved in his writings—you’ll find on these pages. You’ll hear the same passion and sense the same skill. And most of all—you’ll see the same Savior.”    – Max Lucado

“In The Parable of Joy you uniquely meet Christ at the level of intimacy He intends. You will never read John’s gospel more richly.”    – Larry Crabb

“The gospel of John has a way of bringing out the best in us—evoking reflection and prayer, obedience and belief from depths within us that we hardly knew were there. And it has done it yet again in Michael Card. His lived responsiveness to St. John is marked by winsomeness, lyricism, and joy, inviting us into this sacred text.”    – Eugene Peterson

In his gospel, John the apostle gives eyewitness details that help us “be there” with Jesus. Now, Michael Card, with his unique blend of artistry and biblical knowledge, introduces you to the apostle and his gospel in a fresh new way—including his own translation of the gospel from the original Greek text.

Michael’s imagination, always grounded in solid biblical scholarship, makes John’s stories of Jesus and the disciples come to life. Read them as you never have before, and you’ll understand clearly, perhaps for the first time, why John’s discipleship and close friendship with Jesus enable him to tell us details about Christ as no one else could.
