Editorial Reviews

"When I discovered Walking on Water years ago, my creative self underwent a sort of liberation. I had always sensed that there was a wonderful connection between spirituality and creativity, but Madeleine’s insights about both of those worlds helped me claim with more confidence my own creative gifts. This is a wise and inspiring book that should be in every artist’s library."
–Vinita Hampton Wright, author of Grace at Bender Springs and Velma Still Cooks in Leeway

"Once again, L’Engle touches the deepest parts of our psyche and heart with her artist’s wand. She writes with an earthy rhythm that not only reveals the mysteries of our artistic natures, but also qualifies all along the way her inimitable wise-woman philosophies. L’Engle’ s writing is God’s gift to a generation who needs to sit on a stump and lend an ear to what the right brain is saying to the left and to what the soul is saying to the heart. Walking on Water guides the wandering artist back to the Savior and says ’There, you’ve come home again where you belong!’"
–Patricia Hickman, award-winning author of Katrina’s Wings

"There are those who write about art-making as if they’ re detailing the techniques of a heart surgeon. Then there are those, like Madeleine L’Engle, who simply show you their heart. Like the words of Jesus to the fisherman brothers, the words of Madeleine are ’follow me’ words. Through the pages of Walking on Water hungry, thirsty folks have been following for two decades–quickly recognizing that the reason Madeleine is worth following is that she follows Jesus."
–Charlie Peacock-Ashworth, record producer and author of At the Crossroads: An Insider's Look at Contemporary Christian Music

    Most people are familiar with Madeleine L'Engle as an author of the childrens' books, A Wrinkle in Time and A Wind At the Door, but, like me, were unaware of her books for adults. I had recently re-read A Wind at the Door, having read it several times years ago to my own children, and was enthralled again with the way she handled such ponderous ideas of life and faith. While visiting Christianbooks.com, looking for copies of another book, I thankfully now, "happened upon" this little book of essays for artists. It was on sale and I'm an artist, so I thought, "Why not?". Little did I know what was in store for me...treasures beyond measure! This book will be a friend for a lifetime and I will continure to revisit it for guidance, encouragement, insight and refreshment in my artistic life.
