“Everybody wants to go to heaven, but nobody wants to die. And heaven, if we’re to believe what was proposed by a man two thousand years ago, is a kingdom coming and a kingdom here and now; something for the present, not reserved entirely for the ever after. Right now we exist somewhere between here and there, and bluegrass carries the high lonesome song

Overview

“Everybody wants to go to heaven, but nobody wants to die. And heaven, if we’re to believe what was proposed by a man two thousand years ago, is a kingdom coming and a kingdom here and now; something for the present, not reserved entirely for the ever after. Right now we exist somewhere between here and there, and bluegrass carries the high lonesome song of our condition in its soul. None of us are getting out of here alive, but we will conclude that death is not the ultimate calamity.”
–David Crowder and Mike Hogan

When grief shatters our world and the pain of death and loss consumes us, we not only yearn for comfort, we want answers. Musicians David Crowder and Mike Hogan help us find those answers—and give us a song of hope in the meantime.

In this unique book filled with warm, thought-provoking, and often hilarious insights, Crowder and Hogan reveal how bluegrass music can reach our souls like nothing else. Bluegrass was born from pain but has hope at its core; it gives us a song that assures us that death does not win, it is the beginning.

I enjoyed reading this book about death and grief and our general difficulties in dealing with death. I do think they were a little too campy and cute in their presentation and discussion of "deep" subjects. (They also failed to give credit to where credit is due. A fine band from down south, Black Oak Arkansas, has a song by the same title as the book. Their lyrics address the same issues, but in a more forth-right manner.) Buy the book and also get a hold of a CD by BOA with the afore-mentioned song on it. That will take care of things, then. Thanks for reading my brief review.
