InterVarsity Press is proud to present:

The Biblical Imagination Series


by Michael Card

F or years Michael Card’s music has imaginatively explored the


narrative power of the Word of God. Now in The Biblical Imagi-
nation Series Card invites readers to enter into Scripture as he does, at
the level of the imagination.

These volumes help us discover the biblical text for ourselves, ask our own
questions and discover deeper truths. Taking seriously the individual life of each
Gospel writer, The Biblical Imagination Series reintegrates our minds with our
hearts to recapture our imaginations with the beauty and power of Christ.

Forthcoming in
