Summary "Cash sang about and for people on the margins. He famously played concerts in prisons, where he sang both murder ballads and gospel tunes in the same set. It's this juxtaposition between light and dark, writes Richard Beck, that makes Cash one of the most authentic theologians in memory. In reflecting of Cash's lyrics, and the passion with which he sang them, we gain a deeper understanding of the enduring faith of the Man in Black"--Back cover
