His book, IS GOD REALLY THERE? AND IS HE GOOD? (Harvest House) explores the nature of life, belief, tragedy and the Divine choreography and wonder of being alive. In his own words, “You’ll laugh, you’ll cry, you’ll be glad you’re not me."

In his second book, LETTER TO A GRIEVING HEART (Harvest House), Billy gathered lessons learned from his own experiences with grief in this personal letter to those facing the loss of a loved one. Billy followed up the book by writing and producing a multi-artist companion CD, SONGS TO A GRIEVING HEART. For more information about Billy’s projects, visit
