(August 5, 2013) - Singer/songwriter, worship leader and author Jeff Slaughter, best known to millions as the composer behind Lifeway Vacation Bible School's most beloved songs, met with old friends and made new ones during his recent book signing at Barnes & Noble Bookstore in Brentwood, Tenn. Slaughter was on hand to sign copies of his debut book, It's All True: Walking By Faith in a Funky World, at the Barnes & Noble location in Cool Springs while meeting with people who attended the event.
""The coolest part about the recent book signing at the Barnes & Noble in Cool Springs was seeing all the familiar faces that showed up! I was blown away that church groups would drive an hour or more just to come," Slaughter said. "Then, I had the chance to make new friends when folks I've never met before came out to buy the book and have me sign it. It was a super fun day!"

It's All True, Slaughter'sautobiography, co-written with Randy Winton, was released May 21 by Skyhorse Publishing. In the book, Slaughter shares captivating stories of divine appointments and everyday miracles that challenge readers to be on the lookout for God's miraculous interventions in their own lives. And, whether sharing stories of his success as a Christian musician, his grief over losing both of his parents to cancer, his tales of childhood growing up along the Mississippi Delta or his hilariously awkward retelling of personal family matters, Slaughter reaffirms that it is possible to thrive in a funky world. 
"I love a good story. A good one at the right time can change your life. Reading Jeff's has certainly affected mine," friend and music superstar Amy Grant writes in the book's foreword. "There are pivotal moments in all our lives, but rarely has one man's courageous story so gracefully expressed the perseverance, hope--and, yes, faith--we all rely on to get by."

Industry experts estimate that more than 46 million people have sung Slaughter's songs throughout the world. The inspiration for some of his most touching and meaningful songs comes from the experiences he recounts in It's All True. From his childhood in Greenwood, Miss., to his world tours through Vacation Bible School, Slaughter's story will speak to those who search for faith, and for the hope that life will lead them beyond their present circumstance.

It's All True is available at major retailers, including LifeWay Christian Bookstores, Barnes and Noble, Books-A-Million and Amazon. For more information about Slaughter and It's All True, visit  jeffslaughter.com.
