- EXCELLENT by CJ on 1/9/13
I could hardly put the book down, I finished it in about 5 days.... For Scott Stapp to open up his life story as he did was so touching. I hope other readers are touched by the things that have happened to Scott Stapp and his honesty and maybe see themselves in parts and know there is a great God that is always there by our side just waiting for us to cry out for His help. A must read... Thank you Scott for sharing so openly.
- An Amazing Story by Jamie on 9/25/12
Anyone who has listened to Creed knows that many of their songs seems to have religious themes and undertones; some have even branded them a Christian band. What you may not know is that many of their lyrics penned were based on Scott Stapp's yearning to make sense of a God he thought he knew, but at times couldn't understand. Stapp had no desire for Creed to be labeled a Christian band or even for himself to labeled as such because he knew he was not living that life. One would imagine that life for a band as big as Creed would be a piece of cake, but there were struggles with jealousy, betrayal and addictions that led to anger, resentment and the eventual downfall of the band. Sinner's Creed invites the reader into Scott Stapp's life, his upbringing, rebellion, addiction and eventually his complete surrender to God. The writing in this book is so captivating and intriguing that I didn't want to put it down; I finished it in just a few days.
I'm not usually a fan of celebrity memoirs and autobiographies, but I loved this book. Scott tells his story with bold honesty and truth, holding nothing back. This books is more than just a memoir, it's a testimony to what God can do in someone's life when they turn over full control and let Him take the reigns. If you've ever been a fan of Creed, you should read this book.
