9780062270276: The Artisan Soul: Crafting Your Life into a Work of Art

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 a work 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 a 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 readers through the process of crafting a life of beauty and wonder.

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 a 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 matters, but the care we bring to the process itself. Just as with baking artisan bread, it's a process that's crafted over time. And God is the master artisan of our lives. With poignant, inspirational stories and insights from art, life, history, and scripture interspersed throughout, McManus walks readers through the process of crafting a life of beauty and wonder.
