The best-selling album has inspired a heart-melting book

In Love Story, one of Christian music's most remarkable singer- songwriters brings to the printed page her proven gift for mining the gritty soil of everyday experience and emerging with poignant gems of spiritual insight. Based on the songs of the popular albums, Music Inspired by The Story, Dove Award winner Nichole Nordeman takes us inside some of the pivotal moments of the people of Scripture, revealing a very human side that we've rarely glimpsed. In the process, she offers us startlingly frank glimpses of her own struggles and faith journey, inspiring us to take the hand of the One who walks with us--who has always walked with us--from beginning to end.

Review
"Through Nichole's brilliant and creative storytelling, timeless Bible characters come to life in such a way, it's as if I'm walking in their shoes. And more than that, it's like they've walked in mine, because I find a little piece of me in every one."
--Natalie Grant

"We had the same experience reading this book that our whole family has had listening to the amazing lyrics Nichole wrote for The Story CD. Her willingness to use her incredible gift in such a brace and honest way makes the real people of the Story and the God of all our stories profoundly more real."
--Mary Beth and Steven Curtis Chapman

"Turns out one of the best living lyricists is also a great author with some super-fresh insights and angles on the greatest story ever told. It's like Nichole actually had lunch with each of the characters before she wrote the chapters."
--Randy Frazee

"I've always loved the writing of anyone who could take the alphabet and turn it into a little army of twenty-six soldiers, send them forth to march across a page, and occupy the territory with beauty, depth, poetry, humor, and truth. This is the talent of Nichole."
