The Man Comes Around: The Spiritual Journey of Johnny Cash

Front Cover
Relevant Media Group, 2003 - Music - 288 pages
SUMMARYCash is more than country. He's timeless. His appeal spans over many decades and many generations. The Man Comes Around addresses why Cash is so important now and why he's always been important. It unpacks the anchor from which all Cash's artistry comes-his spirituality. From the cotton fields of Arkansas to the air fields of Germany, and from the streets of Memphis to the gospel road in Israel, this comprehensive, dripping-with-detail book on the spiritual journey of Johnny Cash will take the reader on an odyssey of earthy, workingman's music and war-torn, complex Christianity.

Review: The Man Comes Around: The Spiritual Journey of Johnny Cash

User Review  - Dena - Goodreads

This was an interesting book. It wasn't written in a story format - more like little episodes - but I still enjoyed reading about Johnny Cash's spiritual journey. Not always on the right track but still hearing God's voice. Read full review
