The Man Comes Around: The Spiritual Journey of Johnny Cash

The Man Comes Around: The Spiritual Journey of Johnny Cash Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Who was Johnny Cash? Rock star? Preacher? Drug addict? Saint? In truth, the Man in Black lived long enough and hard enough to embody all of these — and much more. He was a musical legend, a one-of-a-kind communicator, an American icon — but someone that could never be pigeonholed.

Cash's faith in God was no different: "I'm still a Christian, as I have been all my life," he once said. "Beyond that I get complicated." Cash's faith wasn't smooth, slick, or sweet — it was grizzled, challenged, broken, and messy. But it was real. Unlike any other book written about Johnny Cash, The Man Comes Around: The Spiritual Journey of Johnny Cash chronicles with vivid detail the highs and lows that took place within this man's life-long spiritual journey. It illuminates the deep, unending love he had for his music, his wife, and his God.

Painstakingly researched and adorned with vivid, narrative detail, The Man Comes Around shows the impact this American legend has made not only in American music, but in eternity. After hearing his story, you'll never hear his music the same again.

Foreword by Dan Haseltine, lead singer for Jars of Clay.

Review:

"As you read this book, you will find a thread of redemption in the life of this man." Dan Haseltine

Synopsis:

From the cotton fields of Arkansas to the streets of Memphis to the gospel road in Israel, this comprehensive, dripping-with-detail book on the spiritual journey of Johnny Cash will take the reader on an odyssey of earthy, working man's music and war-torn, complex Christianity. (Motivation)
