I really enjoyed this book by Bill Gaither. Having been to one of the Gaither Homecoming Concerts, and being a musician that works with some Southern Gospel singers, I can feel the love in the room as BG describes those wonderful moments.

This is an amazing book by Bill Gaither! If you're a fan of his Homecoming series then this book is a absolute must read.

Great personal stories of his family and friends make this a great coffeetable book for anybodies house.

I'm not usually a fan of biographies but Bill Gaither is one of my favorite peoople. It was interesting to read about how he got started in the business and grew into the institution he and his Homecoming group are today.

A surprisingly good read... Bill's story is very transparent, and seeing God's bringing Bill full circle back to his roots when Bill was giving up and "retiring" is very inspirational. Fan of the Homecoming stuff or not, this is a great biography. Very interesting.

Good story but not for those who are looking for a fascinating page turner.
