About the Book:

"How will we respond amidst life’s hardest trials? How in the passing of a loved one do we turn our earthly sorrow into heavenly hope? How, when we have no strength to face another day, do we truly lean on the Lord, trust in the power of His word and see that all of His plans towards us are for our good?

Award-winning singer/songwriter Jeremy Camp wrestled with these questions and others from the depths of anguish and encountered a solace that has carried him far beyond easy answers. The testimony of Jeremy and his wife Melissa has touched and inspired thousands.

While that powerful account lies at the heart of I Still Believe, the book delves even further into Jeremy’s life, illuminating:
  • His humble Indiana childhood in a home filled with desperate faith and a reborn love for God
  • His teenage struggles and a taken-by-surprise spiritual awakening
  • The West Coast adventures that unveiled God’s calling on his life
  • His love for Melissa and the storybook hopes they shared
  • How the doors opened for a worldwide music ministry to begin
  • An unexpected friendship with Adrienne that would bring about healing,restoration and a new life together
  • His heart for ministry and a burning desire to see the next generation become truly alive
Jeremy walked through fire and emerged on the other side—not only refined and restored, but also intently focused on proclaiming the reason for his hope.

It is a Hope that you, too, will discover within these pages."

Amber's Review:

We all go through hardships and trials - very personal and very real to each one of us. And there is great encouragement to be found in the stories of those who have clung to faith and hope throughout those difficult times in their lives. Jeremy Camp's declaration of faith (found in the title of his book - I Still Believe) sets the theme for this down-to-earth, simple, and yet powerful read.

Camp writes in a conversational way, reaching out to the reader. He retains an air of humility throughout the book, pointing out what he has learned so far on his life journey without elevating himself and his career. Despite the deep sadness found within these pages, a positive and inspiring attitude remains - an attitude centered on Christ and His will.

I was mostly unfamiliar with Camp and his work before I read this book, and I think that Camp's fans will better be able to appreciate references to his music (etc.). But whether you are a huge fan of Camp, or whether this is the first time you have heard his name, this book has a lot to offer. Learning about Camp's life can help the reader be more understanding of others. And Camp weaves Scripture throughout the pages (and includes some of his song lyrics) to focus the theme on God's sovereignty and love.

I Still Believe is an insightful and moving story of faith and continued trust in God. It isn't the story of a perfect man, but rather the story of a perfect God who never stops loving and offering healing to His broken people.
