What began 50 years ago, when
two high-school English teachers
in an Indiana farm community
began writing songs to express
spiritual insights, has become a
volume of church standards sung
the world over. Bill and Gloria
Gaither's songs have found permanent
homes in people's hearts
and hymnals, making this couple
among the most prolific and popular
in Christian music history. Now
fans and music lovers can see inside
the inspiration and life events
that created the songs they sing
most, including Because He Lives,
There's Something About That Name, and The Family of
God. In her trademark elegant prose, Gloria has created a
beautiful keepsake for all those who love Christian music
and its history.
