Publisher's Summary

A nationally best-selling author and pastor draws lessons of hope and transformation in the perils of excess, the agonies of repentance, and the wonder of redemption found in the life stories of several icons of pop music and rock and roll. 

From the author of Johnny Cash: The Redemption of an American Icon and Steve McQueen: The Salvation of an American Icon comes Lennon, Dylan, Alice, and Jesus, which traces the journeys, rise, fall, and sometimes the redemption of famous entertainers who were brought to their knees—a great place to look up and finally meet their Maker. 

Lennon, Dylan, Alice, and Jesus examines wretched excess, self-absorption and miraculous redemption; the book is a raw, sensitive, and unforgettable journey of sex, drugs, rock and roll, and sweet salvation. Author Greg Laurie traces the lives of rock stars and entertainment figures and legends who wallowed in the decadence of both the high life and low life, as they alternately experienced Heaven and Hell on Earth. He travels with them into their demonic abysses and joyfully chronicles their ultimate ascension to their prodigal moments.

Lennon, Dylan, Alice, and Jesus chronicles the birth of rock and roll in the mid-1950s to today, giving the book an all-encompassing study of pop music history. Through his personal memories, coupled with his carefully crafted observational research, Greg Laurie not only looks deeply into the hearts and souls of these unusual people but bids the listener to join him on a spiritual journey down the secluded halls of the music industry with the individuals who crafted modern-day masterpieces. 

Listeners will enjoy never-before-published accounts of the biggest recording artists of our time and hear testimonies from rockers of the 1950s, 1960s, 1970s, 1980s, 1990s, 2000s, and beyond. More importantly, every listener will find a deeper sense of God’s presence, even in times of loneliness and desolation.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.

Loved the book!!

I love All of Greg Laurie’s books, but the subject matter of this one left me skeptical. Our culture is so enamored with fame and wealth, already, I hoped the book would not further glorify life style that is often so destructive. Im glad the true story,of many of our Rock Icons, has been told… the addiction, depravity, loss and emptiness. Praise God for those who find the truth, and Gods redeeming love!!
I recommend this book

Just What I Needed

Loved this book. The stories of real people and struggles remind me that I am not alone and that Jesus wants us all, not just the perfect people.

Fantastic

This book is so incredibly well written and the thoroughness of the research is second to none. It is very evident that Pastor Greg Laurie has a passion for Christ and a love of music and the artist who create it. I love this book and plan to listen to it repeatedly.

Excellent book about music stars and Jesus

This is my first Greg Laurie book. It won't be my last. I was impressed by the details on this subject. I wished it lasted longer.
