Loved reading this biography of Christopher Parkening. I have always been a big fan of his music, so I really enjoyed getting to read the story of the man behind the music. I thought Grace Like a River was an excellent title for this book. I definitely saw the grace of God displayed in Mr. Parkening's life. The biography part itself was quite interesting, but I was touched by the last chapters discussing his faith. This book brought me to tears at times times and I'm sure it will you. A sweet testament written to honor the God he loves so dearly.
