As such, it’s clear that to simply call John Michael Talbot a successful Christian artist would be a gross understatement. Although he uses his art to communicate his beliefs and love of God, he also feels a responsibility to those who may not be aware of Christ and His teachings. “The world’s a community,” Talbot explains, “and it’s completely interdependent. Everyone is affected by what other people do, and there is a wonderful array of things we can do for God, for Christ and for His church.”

To that end, Talbot strives to keep his community focused and viable in the fast pace of the new millennium. “It’s an alternative living experience,” he says, “but we’re not fanatics about it. We try to use procedures and policies that are balanced and healthy and that recognize the rights of the individual. That may seem radical to some, but we have the checks and balances of the Catholic Church to keep us on the straight and narrow should we go wrong.”

So, how does John Michael Talbot manage to keep it all together? He smiles and credits the Lord for his success. “Jesus said, ‘I have come that you might have life and have it to the full.’ He doesn’t waste anything. He’ll redeem us all if we let Him.”

Indeed, as he reflects on his life and all that has been accomplished, Talbot sighs, “Jesus has been good to me. He’s offered me salvation and a way to help others. In fact, the more I live this life, the more I see our job as a community is to simply be faithful to what God has given us. In that way,” he concludes, “We will be living, nothing more or less, than the gospel of Jesus Christ.”
