Publishers Description Working with clay, paint, crayons, or pencils, artists have long known that the act of creating art can help people explore the deepest recesses of their hearts - and bring about real change in their lives. Michael Sullivan discovered the power of art for himself in the midst of grieving the loss of a young parishioner. Ever since, he has been using simple art projects as a form of prayer and a way of helping others explore what God may be saying to them. Windows into the Soul is a practical, hands-on resource for those who want to explore this means of prayer and contemplation for themselves, approaching the process not as an artist but as a spiritual seeker. Readers will find projects in various media, including clay, charcoal, and acrylic, including not only technical directions, but a gentle guide to the spiritual gold to be mined from the experience.

Beautifully Written Feb 8, 2008
Michael Sullivan has written an engaging book that opened my heart to seeing both art and prayer in new ways. The exercises offered are easy access points for those who don't feel creative and would hesitate to call themselves artists. At the same time, experience artists will be inspired by Sullivan's story. The beautifully written chapters offer a wonderful glimpse into the author's spiritual journey. His authenticity and passion were very inspiring.
