One of the greatest luthiers of our time reveals the secrets of his profession—and how each phase of handcrafting a violin can point us toward our calling, our true selves, and the overwhelming power and gentleness of God’s love.
Martin Schleske explains that our world is flooded with metaphors, parables, and messages from God. But are we truly listening? Do we really see? Using his life experiences, his insights as a master violin maker, and Scripture, Schleske challenges readers to understand the world, ourselves, and the Creator in fresh ways.
When we are able to express the inexpressible, the unheard aspects of life, we become like a well-tuned instrument. As Schleske says, “In the final analysis, music is prayer cast into sound.” The message of this unique book is mirrored in the sensitive photographs by Donata Wenders, an internationally recognized photographer from Berlin.
