Publisher's Description

Doyle Dykes is one of the premier fingerstyle guitarists in the world. When guitar great Chet Atkins was asked a few years ago who he'd pay money to go see, his answer was, "People like Doyle Dykes, who is just an amazing fingerpicker, I think." He has thrilled secular and church audiences all over the world, from the Grand Ole Opry to Knebworth House in Hertfordshire, England (home of the some of the most famous rock concerts in history) to Shanghai, China; James' Burton's International Guitar Festival, Saddleback Community Church, and Harvest Christian Fellowship.

But this book isn't just about his life as a guitar player. Infused into stories like how he was invited to be part of the Stamps Quartet (Elvis' backup band), why a white rose is on the headstock of his signature-model guitar, and how his worst night at the Opry turned out to be anything but, are accounts of the remarkable ways God has shown up in Doyle's life. His warm, engaging style will draw you into each chapter--and you'll finish the book having been inspired, feeling like Doyle is a new friend, and never viewing God the same way again. Includes DVD with music & interviews.

Author Bio

DOYLE DYKES is one of the world's great guitar players. Professional musicians and audiences all over the world have thrilled to his incredible musicianship. Indeed, the late, great Chet Atkins once said he was the kind of artist he would pay money to go see because, "He's just an amazing fingerpicker, I think." He has been a regular guest on the Grand Ole Opry since 1996; has performed with artists such as Vince Gill, Chet Atkins, James Burton and Duane Eddy; and will soon debut his own nation-wide cable television show with some of the world's greatest guitarists. He and his wife, Rita, have been married 37 years and have four children--and a growing list of grandchildren! To learn more about Doyle, visit his website at www.doyledykes.com.

Publisher's Weekly

There are life events that some call circumstance, while others see the hand of God at work. World-renowned guitarist Dykes shares spiritual insights from his life, and he believes confidently that God has been actively present throughout it. Dykes is grateful for his success, and the stories he shares about such famous musicians as Elvis Presley and Eric Johnson make for fascinating reading. He has remained a levelheaded person, not letting fame disturb his personal or family life too much--a rarity in the music business. The author's passion for the Christian faith, however, can sometimes rub the wrong way. Often he seems far too confident and self-righteous regarding how God works in the world. But the narrative gets back on track when he opens up honestly and authentically about his fight with a brain tumor and how his faith has carried him through. Guitarists, especially, will be edified by the narrative of a fine musician who managed to navigate the industry with integrity intact. (Apr.) Copyright 2011 Reed Business Information.

    Doyle is not only a wonderful musician, but also a sincere and warm Christian who loves telling about God and what his friendship with God means.

    This book is a great read and you will enjoy it while discovering God's presence and how we often miss it, because as Doyle says "you're just not paying attention".

    It includes a DVD of some of his music, which is worth the price of the book by itself. I've bought over a dozen copies of this book and given them away. Every recipient has told me how much they were blessed by and enjoyed this book.

    Buy a couple - you are sure to want to share!

    Those who are familiar with Doyle and his music will enjoy

    this "insiders" peek into Doyle's life story.

    His strong faith and love for the Lord is expressed so beautifully. This book will encourage and strengthen the faith of believers. To others.........it just may prove to be the "light" that leads them to Christ.
