About the Author

Fr. Michael White is a priest of the Archdiocese of Baltimore and pastor of Church of the Nativity in Timonium, Maryland. White is the coauthor of Rebuilt--which narrates the story of Nativity's rebirth--Tools for Rebuilding, Rebuilding Your Message, The Rebuilt Field Guide, and ChurchMoney. He is also coauthor of the bestselling Messages series for Advent and Lent.

During White's tenure as pastor at Church of the Nativity, the church has almost tripled in weekend attendance. More importantly, commitment to the mission of the Church has grown, demonstrated by the significant increase of giving and service in ministry, and much evidence of genuine spiritual renewal.

White earned his bachelor's degree from Loyola University Maryland and his graduate degrees in sacred theology and ecclesiology from the Pontifical Gregorian University in Rome.


Through his obsession with Vermeer, White has crafted a powerful and affecting memoir that reminds us how art can be salvation.
A wise and clever book.
An artistic treasure hunt....Following Vermeer grants White another kind of distance, allowing him to vanish into Vermeer's dream, then return refreshed to his own.
White's descriptions are sensuous, precise and evocative. . . . luminous readings of the paintings. An enchanting book about the transformative power of art.
