    He had to be brave to let us into his life like this. The book has some good elements, but a lot of it was rambling and meaningless, or trivial. I am always interested in literature, so his education caught my attention, but it was only fleetingly mentioned. Sometimes he didn't say much about an incident or interaction, just a flat statement. I do appreciate the glowing comments about his beloved wife, children and mother-in-law. This book looks like a showcase for his lyric-writing talents. His story had some insightful moments and some valuable lessons, but I am not a fan, and I have nothing in common with him, so this was not striking any chords with me.

    Sinner's Creed is an uncensored memoir of Scott Stapp, Grammy-award winning lead vocalist of the multiplatinum rock band Creed. From his fundamentalist upbringing through his association with Creed, we traveled through many episodes of glory and disgrace through his raw retelling. I was amazed at how well he was able to persevere through what sounded like a very abusive upbringing to become the success he became, but you could see the effects it had on his relationships and self-image. It was a stark look into the life of a professional band, and a shock to realize how easy it was for Steve to be so manipulated by those who, instead of having his best interests at heart (as he thought), were only worried about keeping him producing revenue by whatever means of chemical props necessary. It made me think of so many of our music idols through the decades who have likely also suffered from such management and its dire consequences (Elvis and Michael Jackson come readily to mind).

    I was surprised to have enjoyed this as much as I did. I'm not a fan of Creed, and had very low expectations. I loved the inclusion of Creed's lyrics at the end. The cynical part of me wondered if Scott would've seemed as sympathetic had the story been told from another band member's perspective. I was impressed by his faith story and his very human struggles with how God and the Christian message fit into his life. Even at his lowest point, he never lost the thought that God was with him. I think the last sentences of his final chapter and the afterword sum it up: "The only way I could make it was by God's grace, one step at a time, one day at a time. I thank God for all that is good and great in this world. I thank Him for allowing me to tell my story. The glory is His." Amen.

    I'm not even sure how to describe my perspective of this book.  As a story, it was very interesting.  The writing was well done.  Scott had a bad home life and I feel sorry for anyone raised in an environment where God is viewed as Someone who demands perfection.   That is not the God I know.  But neither am I completely comfortable with the idea of God being tolerant of anything and everything.  I'm not sure how much I would recommend this book.  Scott did overcome a lot of hurdles with his addictions, but where to from here?  It left a lot of unanswered questions as well.  I didn't make it through all the lyrics at the end of the book.  It's not really my style of reading and they were quite depressing.  I'm not a rock n roll fan, so that probably doesn't help my impression of this book.

    Scott lived a life of hard knocks

    Sinner's Creed is all about his life from a little tike to present day. Man I feel for the little kid Scott. He had such a rough life, poor kid. He took all those hard knocks and while the beat him down momentarily he got right back up and stood his ground. He says his ego would haunt him through out his life saying "There's nothing I can't do; There's nothing too big for me; I can be all things to all people" (page 4 from Sinner's Creed). I know he says that his ego was huge and that this motto would haunt him but I really thing if he didn't have that ego and tough guy self assurance he wouldn't have made it to where he is now. This motto, his love of God and a wonderful caring grandfather helped him through out his life. Even when he grandfather was no longer here on earth he was always with him in spirit and in his thoughts. Scott's love for God is what got him through each hard knock and each fall from the top. Also his family and dear true friends helped him. Even when he was at his low point like all addicts he knew God, his wife and kids and family loved him. He couldn't close his eyes and leave them. He had to "get up" so to speak and fight to stay alive and come through to the other side. All these experiences has always shaped his lyrics he wrote for Creed and now his solo cd Proof of Life.

    The book Sinner's Creed offers the reader an in depth look into the world of author Scott Stapp. Scott was the lead singer of the band Creed. This memoir shows Scott's struggles in the world of self destruction and addiction. His faith in Christ and his second wife lead him on a wonderful journey of recovery. His recovery from addiction lead him back to Christ and opened up new opportunities for him. He presently has a new solo album out called Proof of life. I would highly recommend the book Sinner's Creed for those individuals who are struggling with their faith in God.
