Item Description...
Johnny Cash is one of the most influential figures in music and American popular culture today. While he was an icon to people of all ages during his life, Cash's legacy continues after his death. His remarkable story is captured in this exclusive authorized biography, addressing the whole life of Johnny Cash-not just his unforgettable music but also his relationship with June Carter Cash and his faith in Christ. His authenticity, love for God and family, and unassuming persona are what Steve Turner captures with passion and focus in this inspiring book.
Different from other books written about him, The Man Called CASH brings Cash's faith and love for God into the foreground and tells the story of a man redeemed, without watering-down or sugar-coating. Unquestionably one of the biggest book releases of 2004, The Man Called CASH will be a huge success with his millions of fans and will draw in many new fans with this inspiring story of faith and redemption.The audio book, ISBN 084996377X, is narrated by Cash's close friend and musical partner, Kris Kristofferson.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
piety and weakness  Aug 24, 2006
I learned a lot about Johnny Cash, as well as people like Elvis, Jerry Lee Lewis, Hank Williams, Patsy Cline, and many others who were the ones that generated so much buzz about music in the 1950's. Toward the end of the book, I was sad because I knew that it would speak of his death. I found myself not wanting to hear about it, because I had loved learning about his life so much.

My favorite story in the whole book was about a prayer he prayed at dinner. His dinner guest recalled the story:

Cash prayed and said, "... and we thank you Lord for this food, and we ask that you would bless it to our body. We pray these things in Jesus' name, Amen. When he finished praying he winked at me and said, "I still miss the drugs though."

It is precisely that juxtaposition of piety and weakness that I think I love about him. It reminds me of another man who is known well for his writing when he said:

I am unspiritual, sold as a slave to sin. I do not understand what I do. For what I want to do I do not do, but what I hate I do ... What a wretched man I am! Who will rescue me from this body of death?

In case you didn't catch that, the other man to whom I referred is the Apostle Paul. He happened to be one of Cash's favorite people for obvious reasons. I have wondered why I am so enamored by people like Johnny Cash and Paul; these men of such conviction, but at the same time so open about their transgressions. I think it is because they knew themselves well, and they never allowed the good in them to elevate them to a place where they could look down at others. They knew the darkness, and that it was always waiting if they would just relent and turn to it.

Cash turned to it a lot. However, like Paul, he also said:

Thanks be to God, who delivers me through Jesus Christ our Lord!

At the end of his life, after June Carter died he hung around for a few months more. He could barely walk, was in massive pain, and was eighty percent blind. In this state, however, he still had the Bible enlarged big enough so he could read it. Others spoke about his love of Jesus, his kindness, his generosity, and his faithfulness to June.

So many want to be cynical about people who struggle, fall, get up, and fall again. They like to point and yell to expose someone else's flaws. I am more convinced that the ones who yell the loudest are the ones who are the most scared of having their flaws exposed.

One of my favorite lines in music comes from a song sung by Cash. It was written by Bono and performed with U2 (yeah, I know big surprise). The line goes:

I went out there,
In search of experience,
To taste and to touch,
And to feel as much,
As a man can,
Before he repents.

Isn't that all of our stories? I know it's mine. I also know that it is mine everyday. I walk around, and like a little kid test the boundaries of God's love. Some days, I may not go far, other days I may feel restless and I just want to run. Yet each time I return home to talk with God I find myself speaking the words of Paul:

Thanks be to God, who delivers me through Jesus Christ our Lord!
Redemption  Mar 21, 2006
Johnny Cash gave the occasional exception to F. Scott Fitzgerald's observation that there are no second acts in America. Cash's second act, begun late in life and lasting until his death, was spectacular. I got the American Recordings album that began the second act. The first song is Delia, an almost casual recounting of the murder of a faithless woman - "hard to watch her suffer, but with another round she died, Delia's gone, one more round, Delia's gone."

That album's themes - sin, degradation, cruelty, introspection, forgiveness, guilt, redemption, empathy - are themes of Johnny Cash's life and art covered in this sympathetic biography. It is a book that treats Cash's Christianity and (his struggles with it) with respect and dignity. I am a Southern Baptist gone to seed and a vague spirituality, but can't halp feeling if all Christians were closer to Cash and further from the odious likes of Falwell and Robertson, this world would be closer to what Jesus intended.
Good, Not Great, Biography of a Great American Artist  Jan 7, 2006
I devoured this book, Cash's 1997 Autobiography (with Patrick Carr), the newly remastered/complete Live at Folsom Prison and Live at San Quentin albums (if you don't have these, get'em), and my other Johnny Cash albums (the Rick Rubin series and Cash's Love/God/Murder box set) since seeing the terrific movie Walk the Line. This is a solid and professional work, but it lacks the breadth and depth of the subject. The best part of the biography, in my humble opinion, is the appended reprint of the author's earlier interview with Cash. That section lives and breaths with a spark and fire that are missing from the main text, which gets its zest from the infinitely interesting subject rather than the writing. Despite its flaws of construction and some not-quite-accurate annecdotes, Cash's Autobiography is a better reflection of the qualities and contradictions of the great American artist John Ray Cash.
Impeccable!  Sep 21, 2005
The late Johnny Cash had that rare gift of poise and style that is reserved for a very select few.
His music is the true testimony of his craft. Wherever you are Johnny Cash keep playing, because we're still listening.
Some people come into our lives and quietly go. Others stay for a while and leave footprints on our hearts and we are never the same.
