Between Wyomings – My God and an iPod on the Open Road by Ken Masfield (Thomas-Nelson Publishers, Nashville, TN) Copyright (c) 2009.
I really enjoyed this story and Ken’s ability to tell it. The writing style is very easy to consume. I hope this book is an indication of how publishers may wish to incorporate the art of story-telling and life as a disciple of Christ on this planet.
If you have an interest in the music industry, this book is for you. All the well-known artists that Ken shares his relationships with, plus his insights into the production and promotion side of the music industry — are unique and prompt the reader’s hunger for more.
The irony of what Ken refers to as “I dance between the raindrops of the dilemmas that fall down into my life” (p.61) are priceless and provide the reader with life challenges that we can all relate to.
This book is truly a journey – as we follow Ken and his wife Connie travel across the U.S. and back in their van they refer to as “Moses.”
The realistic insifgts that Ken shares in terms of his relationship with Christ are precious, as stated in the following:
“I think the big reason I love Him so much is beacuse He doesn’t always knock before He enters. He loves to just storm into my deepest parts and start turning over tables, clearing spaces, and setting things free.” (p. 61)
“I face the fact that I can never refuse God’s gentle urging when it comes time for me to move out of my comfort zone. I cannot ever allow myself to get affixed too securely to a place that is not pleasing to the wonderful plans he has for me.” (p.154).
I encourage you to enjoy the journey with Ken and Connie and a whole cast of music industry characters (the Beatles, a ton country music artists including Willie and Waylan).
A pleasant surprise. Enjoy!
