Michael Card

Michael Card (born April 11, 1957 in Madison, Tennessee) is a Contemporary Christian music (CCM) artist who couples folk-style melodies and instrumentation with lyrics that stem from intensive study of the Bible. This perhaps is most brought out and seen, in his very popular thought provoking song ‘Scandalon’ - while on a softer level of feelings from the heart came the song ‘Abba Father’. Since his debut in 1981, he has sold more than 4 million albums and has written 19 number one singles. He lives with his wife, Susan, and their four children in Franklin, Tennessee.

Card received Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees in Religious Studies from Western Kentucky University. His studies in physics and astronomy allowed him to support himself while a student by working for six years at a planetarium. As of 2005, he is working on a Ph.D. in Classical Literature.

    I attended one of his concerts in 1995, and Michael said that he had been asked by a concert attender, why he plays so many Amy Grant songs. He said, "Because I wrote them."

    Michael Card is not just a song writer, but he is alos a theologian and it comes through very strong in his songs. I love how all of his songs are about the Word of God in some way.
