Books from Michael

In the Biblical Imagination Series, Michael invites readers to read his devotional commentary of the gospels alongside inspiring original music. With a book and music CD for each Gospel account, this set will help you discover the biblical text for yourself, recapturing your imagination with the beauty and power of Christ. 


In the final book, John: The Gospel of Wisdom, Michael shows how John fills out our picture of Jesus' divine identity, with stories and sayings of Jesus not recorded by the other Gospel writers.

A Better Freedom explores the biblical imagery of slavery as a metaphor for Christian discipleship. Michael shows how the early church saw Greco-Roman slavery as a window into understanding Jesus both as the Savior who took on the form of a slave, but also the true Lord and Master who sets us free from our own slavery to sin.
