<i>Scribbling in the Sand</i> Named One of the Best in 2002

Scribbling in the Sand:  Christ and Creativity, written by Michael Card and published by InterVarsity Press, has been named one of the "Best Religion Books of 2002" by Publishers Weekly.

Released in July 2002, Scribbling in the Sand is Card's exploration of the biblical foundations of true Christian creativity.  With Jesus as his model, the author asserts that understanding God’s creative imagination leads to a lifestyle of humility, obedience and servanthood. 

"Scribbling in the Sand is a journal of my creative journey for the last 20 years," says Card.  "As I reflected back I realized that journey was one in which, though I often felt otherwise, I was never alone.  It was a journey with Jesus Christ.  I ultimately hope that everyone who reads the book will sense a deeper understanding of who Jesus is and what He means.  It is, after all, a book about Jesus."

The only evangelical publisher to have a book selected for 2002, InterVarsity Press celebrates the selection of Scribbling in the Sand as the first time the publisher has had a top religion book selected by Publishers Weekly

Michael Card has signed on for a second book with InterVarsity Press, titled A Fragile Stone, to be released in July 2003.
