Book Review: Country Faith

County Faith is a collection of 58 country music stars favorite verses and why.  This collection includes stars like Sara Evans, Miranda Lambert, Scotty McCreery, Trish Yearwood, and many many more.  Each singer gives a short discussion on why they chose the verse they did and what significance it has in their lives.  This book is being sold as a one a day reflection.  Each passage/singer’s thought is very short and only takes a minute or two to read.  This book is also a good coffee table book with pictures of each of the singers for a quick read in your few minutes of quiet.

This book is refreshing to see how the Bible has effected so many country singers and how they hold onto these verses to give them guidance, strength, and peace in their lives.  In that way their lives are not so different from ours.  They still have the same struggles, losses, and obstacles as the average American. 

Some of the passages are better written then others.  Some are more personal and others very vague and generic but in general the book the very well put together.  Also I think it is great that 1% of the listed price of the book is donated to Sophia’s Heart Foundation.  Yes, 1% isn’t very much but considering the large number of county music fans I’m sure it will accrue into a substantial donation.

Note: I was given a copy of this book to read and review from Zondervan publishing from free.  The opinions above are my own and I was not compensated for a positive review.
