Amy Grant

The Life of a Pop Star

Bob Willard

St. Martin's Griffin

Amy Grant is a bona fide pop star with roots of gospel. As one of the biggest-selling recording artists in gospel music history, she's made the sectarian leap to mainstream "pop gospel" - but not without a fight. Grant has learned that success doesn't come easily, or directly. Despite the Grammys, numerous Dove awards, and the throngs of devoted fans, Grant has had to live with often conflicting loyalties to her career and her spiritual beliefs. As the most glorious symbol of the new Christian woman - tough, liberated, ready to admit her mistakes - Grant is not content to sugarcoat the trials of her life. She has knowingly planted her feet on two antagonistic grounds: secular and religious, commandeering her conflicted position head-on, with warmth and grace.
