The Walk: A Moment in Time When Two Lives Intersect

Overview

"It is impossible to estimate the value of the moment when two lives intersect for the first time," Michael Card reflects.

When Card went to Western Kentucky University, he majored in wildlife management because he wanted a job that didn't involve people. Little did he know that he would meet a man who would compel him, by the example of his life, back into the world of people, for Jesus' sake.

The Walk is Michael Card's story of his relationship with Bill Lane, who forever ...

Overview

"It is impossible to estimate the value of the moment when two lives intersect for the first time," Michael Card reflects.

When Card went to Western Kentucky University, he majored in wildlife management because he wanted a job that didn't involve people. Little did he know that he would meet a man who would compel him, by the example of his life, back into the world of people, for Jesus' sake.

The Walk is Michael Card's story of his relationship with Bill Lane, who forever changed his outlook on life. The book is both a journal and a study of the real meaning of discipleship. Card says, "Bill's walk was a parable of his life. Through him, or because of him, it would become the parable of my life as well."

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Card, the popular, award-winning Christian songwriter, has written a love song of sorts in this book about his friend and mentor Bill Lane. Card met Lane at Western Kentucky University when Card was a student and Lane a professor. Card felt compelled to ask Lane to spend time with him, not knowing that Lane had been praying for a young man to befriend and disciple. Thus began a deep friendship that lasted 20 years, ending when Lane died of cancer. Card not only discusses the legacy and gifts Lane gave him as a friend, but he also explores the rare relationship they enjoyed as disciple and teacher. Card feels strongly that spending time under Lane's tutelage equipped him to go out as Christ's representative, just as Jesus equipped his disciples to venture into the world as apostles. Lane taught Card to "let the excellence of [his] work be [his] protest" when the young songwriter complained bitterly about the lack of integrity in the Christian music business. He showed Card how to have a listening heart toward God and others, and taught him that every activity should start and end with prayer. Finally, Lane bestowed on Card the gift of demonstrating how a Christian man dies. This Tuesdays with Morrie-style story of Christian discipleship will appeal to anyone who is a fan of Card and his music. (Mar.) Copyright 2000 Cahners Business Information.
