The Life Trilogy by Michael Card includes all songs from his three albums THE FINAL WORD, SCANDALON and KNOWN BY THE SCARS, plus the instrumental song "Overture to the Trilogy." 3 Albums on 2 CDs.
This trilogy represents a progression, perhaps you might even call it a pilgrimage, through the Gospels... From the Incarnation to the death and Resurrection - thsoe two most implausible, impossible and unthinkable events, the bookends of that impossible life, the birth and the death of God.
It is an ongoing pilgrimage, open to everyone who has the guts and the gall for it. At the heart of it all, this trilogy is simply an invitation to join in this journey. And if nothing else, perhaps these are songs we can sing to each other and possibly even to Him along the way.
"Through the Incarnation, the final Word, God speaks to us. In the scandal that was the life and ministry of Jesus of Nazareth, God confronts us. And by the scars of the passion of Jesus Christ, God redeems us. Christ is the Promise of God in a person. He is the Way, the only real source of direction and purpose. He is the Truth and apart from him nothing can be true. He is the Life and without him there is only death. He is the Light and all else is darkness. To the eyes and ears of faith, everything must speak to us of Him who fills everything in every way." (Eph. 1:23) - Michael Card
