A country music superstar talks about Jesus and the simple, faith-based lessons that he learned from his father.
Like the country boy next door, Jesus modeled a grassroots faith that can move mountains. He didnt come to start a mega-church or raise money for a new sanctuary. He didnt come for the religious elite or people who think they have all the answers. He came for good old boys and country gals. He came to love and show that knowing his father is as free and easy as a summer breeze on a front-porch swing. If you want to find God, then its time to lose religion and meet a country boy from Bethlehem.
Clay writes with a lack of pretense and a hands-on attitude toward life, drawing from his own humble beginnings and reminding readers what it means to be grounded in faith and home-grown in love.
Clay Walker is a popular country music star. He made his debut in 1993 with the single "Whats It to You," which reached #1 on the Billboard Hot Country Singles & Tracks charts. His first four studio albums all achieved platinum certification in the United States, and his greatest hits collection and fifth studio album were each certified gold. In addition, he has charted thirty singles on the country charts, including four more #1 hits, for a total of six. In the midst of his success, Walker went public with his diagnosis of multiple sclerosis in 1996 and founded a nonprofit foundation (Band Against MS) to fund MS research and education. The foundation has raised more than $2 million to fight MS. In 2008, he received a Humanitarian Award for his charitable efforts.
"Country music star Walker wrote the hit song 'Jesus Was a Country Boy,' and he later decided to expand the message in this book about Christian faith and country roots. His easygoing conversational interpretations of New Testament passages are insightful, even entertaining. Chapters also speak easily to important universal laws concerning happiness and fulfillment: material wealth and possessions dont necessarily yield contentment; having faith is not all about going to church; its important to operate with integrity; in order to get along its necessary to forgive again and again. Most importantly, Walker wants readers to appreciate the special gift of life. At the age of 26, Walker was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis, but he did not lose heart. Inspired by lessons provided by Jesus, he worked to help himself and others by raising millions for research and education. Warm recollections of childhood and his insistence on cherishing his country roots reflect a natural appreciation for life. This shines with his special country cadence, and the heartfelt wisdom leaves a friendly glow."
