Mosaic by Amy Grant

Thursday, 7 February 2008 Leave a comment Go to comments

Non-Fiction: Memoir. Hardback from Flying Dolphin Press. Published in 2007. 210 pages. On loan from the Fort Worth Public Library.

Years ago I listened to a lot of Amy Grant. When I was in college I recall that ACU would not let her come and give a concert because she sang Christian music with instruments. (I did see Kenny Loggins and Ronny Milsap there though.) Now days I really don’t listen to much music, but I do really enjoy her album of hymns. Her book is not a step by step through her life but rather reflections mixed in with song lyrics. She talks about different people who have impacted her, and muses about some of the stages of her life. It’s an easy read.

Publisher’s summary:
One of America’s most popular music artists shares beautiful pieces of an unforgettable human mosaic, revealing pieces of a life in progress.

With her unmistakable voice and honest lyrics, Amy Grant has captured a unique place in American music. As the bestselling Christian music artist of all time, a crossover pop sensation, and the wife of country music star Vince Gill, Amy has lived much of her life in the spotlight, subject to adulation, speculation, and scrutiny. Now for the first time she bares her heart and soul to reveal thoughts on everything from motherhood and marriage to fame and forgiveness. Whether describing personal moments alone on a moonlit hillside or very public ones performing with the likes of Tony Bennett and James Taylor, Amy presents a captivating collection of beautiful reflections on life, love, and faith.

Here’s a short interview with Amy about the book.

And, if you’re interested in some biographical information, here are five ten minute or less “Intimate Portrait” segments that I enjoyed watching:
