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.
