MyBestYears.com I REMEMBER eColumnist Henry Slaughter has
captivated countless audiences around the globe with his award-winning
During the past six decades he has been associated with some of the top
- Stamps-Ozark Quartet
- Rex Humbard
- Bill and Gloria Gaither
But his story is more than national awards and international recognition, and
his well-received autobiography, In Search of the Pearl of Great Price, first
published in 1980, is the personal account of Henry’s down-home North
Carolina roots, his tragedies, returning to “zero” again and again. It is a story
of music born in a bittersweet mix of life’s valleys and mountaintops.
The book has not been widely available for several years, so we asked Henry
to see if he could find some copies of his autobiography to offer in response
This is the book of which the legendary songwriter Bill Gaither, in his
Foreword wrote, “The question I am asked more than any other is, ‘How can I
get into gospel music as a career?’ Henry’s life is a good example of how one
young lad from the Carolinas pursued that goal. He simply developed his
skills and then waited as the Lord opened doors. His life is a perfect example
of a person letting the Lord open and shut doors…I believe this book will help
show how one pilgrim pursuing a Christian music career has tried to follow
God’s leading through the door-opening-and-closing process.”
BOOK AND 5 CDS, TOO!!!
Well, not only did Henry find a treasure trove of books that he has
agreed to allow us to offer exclusively on MyBestYears.com, but he
