Christian singer/songwriter/author Michael Card brings to life the words of John, the thoughts and feelings of the last living contemporary disciple of Jesus.
As a university student, Michael Card knew Dr. Bill Lane as a professor. Yet over time, their relationship became much deeper, possessing the power to change both men's lives-Bill became Michael's mentor. Michael's life, as he grew from a student to a man, as he grappled with God, and as his music flowed in response to conversations with Bill, took on a new shape because of the intimate fellowship they shared. And when Bill was diagnosed with terminal cancer, his poignant words to Michael-"I want to show you how a Christian man dies"-demonstrated the deep love between them. The Walk is a story of authentic discipleship, laced with life lessons that will move and challenge you. Woven throughout are accounts of how Jesus mentored His own disciples, creating a rare mix of storytelling and study that will encourage you in your own walk with the Lord.
