Greg Laurie, pastor and bestselling author of Steve McQueen: The Salvation of an American Icon, delivers another biography that gives you a personal look at the life and legend of Johnny Cash.
 
At the height of his career, Cash has been through it all, living out the classic rags-to-riches story from growing up on a cotton farm in the Deep South to landing a platform as a Nashville and Hollywood sensation, singing alongside heroes like Elvis Presley and performing for several American presidents.
 
Through it all, Cash was troubled. By the time he launched the acclaimed Man in Black album in 1971, the middle-aged celebrity was broken down, hollow-eyed, and wrung out.
 
In his quest for peace, Cash got caught up in controversy. He was arrested five times in seven years. His escapades with drugs and alcohol led to car accidents and a forest fire devastating 508 acres. His time was split between Jesus and jail, gospel tunes and the Cocaine Blues.
 
By the end of his life, Cash was speaking openly about his unshakable faith. What prompted the superstar to turn from his conflicting passions to pursue a life in Christ?
 
Johnny Cash: The Redemption of an American Icon explores the singer's inner demons, triumphs, and gradual return to faith. Laurie interviews Cash's family, friends, and business associates to show how the singer's true success came through finding the only Person whose star was brighter and bigger than his own.
