Michael Card returns to Nairn
Following his most recent visits in 2009 and 2011, world-class Christian singer/song-writer and author, Michael Card is making a return visit the Highland town of Nairn.
Michael Card is due to give a concert in the Nairn Community Centre which will be Michael's fourth visit to Nairn. The first time he played there was in 1997. Many people who came to that concert still remember what a superb event and came back to hear him in 2009 and 2011.
The concert is one of only Scottish dates on the Gospel Tour 2012 scheduled. (The other being in East Kilbride on the previous evening.) The Nairn concert is planned for -

In a career that spans 25 years, Michael Card has recorded over 23 albums, authored or co-authored over 19 books, hosted a radio program, and written for a wide range of magazines. While he has penned such favorites as "El Shaddai", "Love Crucified Arose", and "Emmanuel," he never imagined selling more than 4 million albums or writing over 19 #1 hits. The popularity of his work seemed a stark contrast to his goal in life, to simply, and quietly teach the Bible.
Although music provided him the opportunity to share insights gained through extensive research, writing songs alone limited what he felt called to share. Card would frequently agonize over having to condense the vast depth and richness of scripture into a three-minute song. And so he fell, quite naturally, into the field of book writing where he has garnered numerous awards.
Never one to compartmentalize his spiritual life, Card's quest for community slowly seeped into his professional life as he began to write articles and books on topics that captured his imagination through conversations with Bible teachers, friends and contemporaries in both Christian music and the academic community.
