Publisher's Summary

In The Artisan Soul, Erwin Raphael McManus, author, thought leader, and founder of MOSAIC in Los Angeles, pens a manifesto for human creativity and the beginning of a new renaissance. McManus not only calls us to reclaim our creative essence but reveals how we can craft our lives into works of art. There are no shortcuts to quality, and McManus celebrates the spiritual process that can help us discover our true selves.

McManus demonstrates that we all carry within us the essence of an artist. We all need to create, to be part of a process that brings to the world something beautiful, good, and true in order to allow our souls to come to life. It's not only the quality of the ingredients we use to build our lives that matter but the care we bring to the process itself. Just like baking artisan bread, it's a process that's crafted over time. And God has something to say about how we craft our lives.

With poignant, inspirational stories and insights from art, life, history, and scripture interspersed throughout, McManus walks listeners through the process of crafting a life of beauty and wonder.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your Library section along with the audio.

    "Fantastic! Must read for everyone!"

    This is a must read, especially for those who do not think they are creative. I have been an art teacher since 1998! I agree with everything Erwin mentions in this book. I have experienced this first hand with the 12,000+ art students I have taught over the years. I also know from personal experience that when I am actively creating art, I am intimately connecting with my Creator, God. There is a depth of creativity that we all have, given to us, by God, because that is who he is...The Most Creative Creator who made us in his image!

    "Bad narration"

    The guy sounded like he was about to burst into tears the entire time. Impossible to listen to.

    "Beautiful & Thoughtful"

    Erwin,
    Thank you for this book! I heard & saw you speak at Christian Faith Center in Seattle and I thought you had such a refreshing & unique perspective. I loved how it spoke directly to me and how to see yourself as making your life a piece of art. I am a painter and am practicing everyday to perfect my craft. God bless you & your family! Thanks again, the best book I've listened to in some time!
