The Grand Ole Opry, Nashville, Hollywood, nightclubs and singing stars
provide a colorful background fo rthe story of a man who several times
has tasted both success and tragedy.
The son of country and western singer Hank Snow, Jim grew up in the bizarre
and sometimes brutal setting of the show business circuit. Eventually his father
became a well-known Grand Ole Opry performer, and Jim was riding high.
But an automobile accident shattered his world, catapulting young Jimmy
into a decisive conversion to Christ and a career as an evangelist.
Jimmy's work prospered; Opry people were converted to Christ, and Jimmy
was preaching throughout the country. Once more he was riding the crest
of success when calamity struck even more devastatingly than before.
Through this disaster, however, the Lord worked deeply in his life and
Jimmy was brought more fully into the life of Christ than he had
ever before thought possible.
"Some of his revelations may suprise you, some of it sounds like a public
confession...but the humbled-at-the-feet-of-Jesus attitude of my friend
and brother, Jimmy Snow, will inspire you."
