I remember being in Junior High and High School and listening to Creed and being surprised to hear what I though were Christian lyrics, since their music was completely different than any other Christian Music I listened to at that time. Knowing the songs of Creed, as well as hearing about some of the difficulties with drugs and alcohol lead singer Scott Stapp struggled with, made me really want to read the book Sinner’s Creed by Scott Stapp. Scott’s life is what I would expect of some of the partying-type rock-stars. He faced addictions in his life which led to the eventual breakup of his band and family. Scott Stapp’s book looks at the aspect of God’s forgiveness and how he was able to move beyond his past.
I really enjoyed this book and was glad I had the opportunity to read it. I found Scott Stapp’s testimony to be very truthful and interesting. His memoir looks at not just the time he spent in the band Creed, but also his upbringing and relationships after the break-up of his band. I think anyone who enjoyed listening to the band Creed will enjoy this book, and I can’t wait to give it to my sister to borrow since she was a huge Creed fan.
