Synopses & Reviews
Johnny Cash. The Apostle Paul. Passionate. Controversial. Fiery. Destructive. Redeemed.
Two legendary men. Two thousand years apart-yet remarkably similar.
Both struggled with a thorn in the flesh. And both had powerful visions from God.
Paul's encounter with the Man in White knocked him to the ground and struck him blind. It also turned him into one of the most influential men in history.
Johnny Cash's vision was of another man entirely-his recently deceased father-a vision that helped spark his imagination to write this historical novel about the amazing life of the intriguing figure with whom Cash identified so deeply-the Apostle Paul.
See Paul as you've never seen him before--through the creative imagination of one of the greatest singer-songwriters America has ever known. Subsequently see Johnny Cash, the man in Black, as you've never seen him before--as a passionist novelist consumed with the Man In White.
A passionate historical novel about the life of the Apostle Paul, a man whose encounter with the Man in White on the road to Damascus was radically life-changing. It was, in fact, an encounter that changed the world.
To capitalize on Johnny Cash's renewed popularity, as witnessed in the Golden Globe winning movie, Walk the Line (which just released as a DVD this month) and the much-heralded Broadway musical, Ring of Fire, we'll want to synchronize our book's release with the next album releases:
Double Album of Previously Unreleased Recordings (Sony) May 1, 2006
American V, the last album with Rick Rubin (Universal) July 4, 2006
Johnny Cash, who struggled with his own demons and publicly testified to God's healing grace, deeply identified with Saint Paul's experience of salvation. In Man in White, Cash weaves a fascinating story of Saint Paul's single-minded, zealous persecution of the early Christians and his dramatic conversion on the road to Damascus.
This powerful novel from one of America's greatest songwriters covers Saul's early obsession with destroying the Christian movement, describes his extraordinary conversion on the road to Damascus, and follows his career as a missionary to the gentiles.
