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.

My soul has come alive again!!

Deep down i know I’ve been an artist since forever but life has pushed the belief that only a select few are artists. Erwin relit the artisan fire in my soul and the best part about it is this belief is all based on the word of God💕 God is the creator. And we are made in His image. I 100% recommended this book to everyone⭐️🌟⭐️🌟⭐️

More Theory than Teaching

If you're looking for something to stir you or motivate you with Biblical-based support, this is for you. If you're looking for something akin to writing prompts or inspirational starting points, not so much. It's more theoretical or about the soul rather than teaching.

Beautiful and Brilliant

This book is a masterpiece in it of itself. Erwin is a brilliant thinker who expands our understanding of life and it’s meaning. My only complaint is that I wish it was longer!!

My favorite book from Erwin so far. Everyone should read this.

Amazing book!

This book really helped me as an artist who is struggling on answering many questions which constantly appear in my mind, about my identity, about what I’m supposed to do, and how I should love out my life. I would go back to this book again and again whenever I’m in doubt of myself.

Loved the message

At times I felt the author was boastful of his own accomplishments. I wish there were more examples of women artists.

Inspired and life changing

This book has put into words how I've felt my whole life. This has inspired me to take this simple but overlooked idea and put it into action. I would love to take this basic idea and inspire my kids that they are creative and will always be because they were created in the image of the invisible God, and God works in and through them to show his ultimate creative works... US! Never let that mind of a child die due to what others may speak of you but always look to your creator! We all are creative! Now let's use it to change the world.
