Everybody Wants to Go to Heaven But Nobody Wants to Die
Crowder & co-author Hogan observed that people in “the proximity of our affections” kept dying, with the first “antagonist” being cancer.
But then death came out of the blue, taking Kyle Lake, a young pastor & author, last October while he stood in a baptismal pool.
In Everybody Wants to Go to Heaven…, bluegrass music is chosen as the framework from which to discuss death & its impact. Bluegrass, with both suffering & hope in it, has a certain worldview, Crowder asserts, taking readers on a “philosophical journey to the center of the soul.”
Similar in style to Crowder’s Praise Habit, Everybody Wants to Go to Heaven will attract the artist’s fans. Gen-X & -Y readers may appreciate the book’s quirky style & the IM messages sent between the authors interspersed throughout while gleaning from it what they have learned about one of life’s most difficult subjects.
