I was so excited when I saw the publisher had made Sinner's Creed by Scott Stapp available as a free ebook on Kindle for a limited time. I downloaded it immediately - I'd been wanting to read this book since it came out but just hadn't gotten the chance yet. The description reads: "Sinner’s Creed is the uncensored memoir of Scott Stapp, Grammy Award–winning leader of the multiplatinum rock band CREED. During CREED’s decade of dominance and in the years following the band’s breakup, Scott struggled with drugs and alcohol, which led not only to a divorce, but also to a much-publicized suicide attempt in 2006. Now clean, sober, and in the midst of a highly successful solo career, Scott has finally come full circle—a turnaround he credits to his renewed faith in God.
In Sinner's Creed, Scott shares his story for the first time—from his fundamentalist upbringing, the rise and fall of CREED, and his ongoing battle with addiction, the rediscovery of his faith, and the launch of his solo career. The result is a gripping memoir that is proof positive that God is always present in our lives, despite the colossal mess we sometimes make of them."
I am a big fan of Creed and always wanted to know the behind-the-scenes story with Scott. I loved reading his memoir of how he fell so far into sin and addiction as a Christian, but of course God was there all along and just waiting to redeem him as soon as he repented and asked. I enjoy reading books like this because it's a great reminder that we have a great Saviour who is willing to redeem literally anyone, just for the asking. There's never too low a point. Reading the behind the scenes story about Creed was also very entertaining. I loved this book and would recommend it to any fan of Creed and/or Scott Stapp.
