When Craig Cooper and Walker Hayes met, Walker was an alcoholic atheist reeling from the backlash of a failed music career. Through their unlikely friendship, Craig’s life demonstrated the love of Christ in a way that shattered Walker’s misconceptions of Christianity, ultimately leading him down the path to a dramatic conversion. The two are now close as brothers, choosing to be next-door neighbors and ripped out the fence between their homes as a testament to the power of the gospel to break down barriers and unite people together in Christ. Glad You’re Here helps us discover how building relationships, sacrificing for the good of others, and drawing near in times of need can lead to powerful transformation. Through story and biblical reflections, Glad You’re Here helps readers see how God works in the everyday lives of those who love him.
Must must read!
Walker Hayes is my favorite country music artist. Y’all! I highly encourage you to make this your next read… A story of “rejection & redemption, loss & love”, hope, grace, kindness, friendship, unconditional love and God working all things for good. I chuckled at some of their stories, especially when Craig wore his seeing goggles for baseball for the first time, but mostly I cried, because Jesus is so so kind, and if he’s able to bring a frustrated, angry and drunk atheist to his feet, than he can certainly turn your situation around, too. Thank you Walker and Craig for this book. It will no doubt change lives for the glory of God! Also, you don’t have to like country to be touched and encouraged by this book. Lastly, I hope you have a friend like Craig and Walker.
This is an easy read and a compelling story of friendship, grace and redemption and living an authentic life.
Glad you are here
Loved the example of relational evangelism and commit to living people well. The transformation of lives from the gospel was so inspiring
