In this episode of the Author Talks with Shaun Tabatt podcast, I speak with Jeff Slaughter about his book It’s All True: Walking By Faith in a Funky World (Skyhorse Publishing, 2013).
About the Book:
Jeff Slaughter is known throughout the world for both his amazing passion in worship leadership and his awe-inspiring lyrics, estimated to have been sung by forty-six million children worldwide. Yet, what’s less known about Jeff Slaughter is the tough journey of heartbreak and loss, joy and victory that led him to a place where he could finally share his remarkable story.
It’s All True reveals both the tragedy and triumph of Jeff Slaughter’s life. Readers will no doubt draw encouragement and great strength from the story of a man who, despite difficult circumstances, has always found God to be right there with amazing grace, seeing him and his family through all obstacles. When Jeff tells such stories as witnessing his fourteen-year-old niece’s tragic death at a family Labor Day picnic and the lost battles with cancer fought courageously by both his parents, the reader will feel his pain. Yet, the reader will also experience joy through the many humorous moments of Jeff’s life and the new path God has blazed for him. Through it all, some of his most touching and meaningful songs have come from those experiences, including the song entitled “It’s All True,” which has provided the theme for Jeff’s life.
About the Authors:
Jeff Slaughter is a multi-platinum recording artist and world-renowned worship leader who has worked with some of the biggest stars in country music, including Conway Twitty, Loretta Lynn, Faith Hill, and Amy Grant. He was enlisted by Lifeway—the world’s largest provider of Christian resources—to be the sole songwriter for Vacation Bible School.
Randy Winton is the author of In My Shoes and a youth ministry veteran, following an award-winning career as a sportswriter.
