Tell us a little about yourself. I have been interviewing songwriters for more than forty years and have received from them the stories behind 200 songs. I still continue to interview these marvelous Christian writers. I have developed the music programs of some of the leading churches in America, one of which is the largest with more than 20,000 in attendance on Sundays.
What was your motivation behind this project? It all started with the study of hymnology in college. I then went from research to actually interviewing the songwriters themselves. I have found them to be honest, humble, sincere men and women of God. They are always happy to share their stories, and are grateful to be included in the book.
What do you hope folks will gain from this project? This book gives you the accounts and happening in the lives of these songwriters which gave rise to songs that have become standards in Christianity. The stories are presented in the actual words of the writers as received in interviews. Some of the stories are funny, some are sad, and some are happy, but all are true accounts behind the songs you love.
Anything else you'd like readers / listeners to know: One of my books of song stories went to # 11 on the Christian Booksellers Association bestseller list. I have written 33 books and manuals on various subjects.
