Eric Clapton - Faith

I'm always fascinated when an icon of popular culture discusses matters of faith and prayer. John Powell has a great story in Christianity Today about Eric Clapton's faith journey:
From the age of 9 when he learned that he was born out of wedlock to his "auntie" and an unknown Canadian soldier, he struggled to find a safe place. Feelings of isolation and insecurity haunted him throughout life, drawing him to the gritty alienation of the blues. But there is a spiritual side of Clapton that was scarcely known. It almost always influenced what he thought and did, and the kind of music he wrote and played.
An interesting and inspiring story. Now I want to read Clapton's autobiography.
