Touched by God by Bobby Jones

Book Description

In a soul-lifting collection that resounds with joy, today's black gospel superstars tell how the Lord has changed their lives, shaped their music -- and led them to triumph over life's most incredible trials. Dr. Bobby Jones, host of Black Entertainment Television's Bobby Jones Gospel and Video Gospel, joins nineteen acclaimed gospel performers whose personal stories, like the healing, hopeful music they were called to sing, are celebrations of God's glory. Kirk Franklin reveals how it took the violent death of his close friend for God to reach out and touch him, and turn him from a gang-banger to a minister for Christ. John P. Kee affirms that God saved him from drugs and the fast-money lifestyle of the streets. Shirley Caesar remembers how she fell apart when her mother died, and how the Lord helped put the pieces of her life back together. Given only a few months to live by his doctors, blind minister and gospel star Rev. James Moore praises God for a different kind of prognosis that keeps him singing to this very day. Gospel matriarch Albertina Walker's testimony affirms her God-given stamina in a harsh world that has tried to knock her down more than once. Dottie Peoples describes an encounter with an angel that took her out of nightclubs and returned her to singing gospel music in church. As rousing as a gospel choir in full swing, these and other inspiring accounts of hope and transformation confirm the power of music and faith -- and will stir the hearts of those looking to strengthen their own ties with the Lord.
