9780802406491: The Lights of Marfa Audio Book: One of the World's Great Guitar Players Amazing Encounters with God

Doyle Dykes is one of the premier fingerstyle guitarists in the world. When guitar great Chet Atkins was asked a few years ago who he'd pay money to go see, his answer was, "People like Doyle Dykes, who is just an amazing fingerpicker, I think." He has thrilled secular and church audiences all over the world, from the Grand Ole Opry to Knebworth House in Hertfordshire, England (home of the some of the most famous rock concerts in history) to Shanghai, China; James' Burton's International Guitar Festival, Saddleback Community Church, and Harvest Christian Fellowship.

But this audiobook, read by Doyle,  isn't just about his life as a guitar player. Infused into stories like how he was invited to be part of the Stamps Quartet (Elvis' backup band), why a white rose is on the headstock of his signature-model guitar, and how his worst night at the Opry turned out to be anything but, are accounts of the remarkable ways God has shown up in Doyle's life. His warm, engaging style will draw you into each chapter--and you'll finish the book having been inspired, feeling like Doyle is a new friend, and never viewing God the same way again. Includes DVD with additional music by Doyle including the single Lights of Marfa.

From the Back Cover:

Okay. You've never heard of Marfa, Texas and the mysterious lights that appear in the desert outside town.

Neither had Doyle. When he did, he just had to see for himself. What he saw - lights spinning, splitting, changing colors, and moving at speeds nothing man-made can achieve - gave him the perfect picture for the mystery and wonder of the amazing stories you're about to read.

They'll put you in the middle of a world every guitar player or fan of guitar music dreams of - and, courtesy of the enclosed DVD, you'll see Doyle play songs relating to the chapters (including the new title cut written for this book) - and hear him talk about things like what's on his heart when he plays, what he hopes you'll get from the book, and the depth of his relationship with Jesus Christ.

In fact, as much as you'll be amazed by his musicianship, as much as you'll laugh, wipe a tear from your eye, pause for a minute because you're so inspired by what you've heard, or think "that is just so cool" - what will leave you clutching this book in the end, not wanting to let go, is the desire to have with Jesus what Doyle has with Jesus. And the good news is, you can.
