It is within the simplicity of lyric and the vulnerable, unashamed depth of feeling that listeners to Michael W. Smith's inspired compositions always find the heart and meaning of his music. Always unique in his approach, Michael, a Grammy Award-winning composer, has a seemingly endless brilliance for setting to music the deeply felt, unspoken longings of the human soul.

His latest, HEALING RAIN, which is stirring the souls of listeners worldwide, has inspired a uniquely beautiful HEALING RAIN (Integrity Publishers, 2004) gift book that has a bonus DVD of the song included. This graceful, soothingly illustrated book is filled with encouragement, scripture and wise and loving counsel. It expands on Michael's message in the song as he reaches out to those in need of spiritual, emotional or physical refreshment. The DVD includes a visually inspiring rendition of the musical anthem as well as commentary from Michael and all those involved in its production.

In HEALING RAIN, Michael gently and ever-so-lovingly teaches readers that although the seas of life are often rocked by raging storms of sickness, death, depression and the uncertainties of life, God is never far away. He reminds us that no matter where we have been or what we have done, God is waiting--and longing--to forgive, cleanse and heal hurting hearts. He is still in the business of restoring lives. This little book is a treasure and an inspired gift for uncertain, hurting hearts everywhere.
