#6: Sinner's Creed - Scott Stapp

Sinner’s Creed is the uncensored memoir of Scott Stapp, Grammy Award–winning leader of the multi-platinum rock band Creed. Raised by an abusive stepfather, Scott was always aware of God’s presence, but it wasn’t until years later, amid a life punctuated by sex, drugs, and rock ’n’ roll that Scott began to feel a need for God in his life.

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 relationship with Jesus Christ.

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, to his re-commitment to Christ 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.

REVIEW:
I saw this book for free and grabbed a copy. I was a fan of Creed after all, but hadn't heard anything of theirs for some time.
Then recently, I saw Scott Stapp in the media basically having a mental breakdown in a video. He is convinced there is a conspiracy out to get him. That prompted me to start reading this book I had waiting, and maybe see what his meltdown was all about.
This guy has had some really serious issues his whole life. A psychotic break was imminent. He is a diagnosed depressed person, and is suicidal at times. Then you throw in the religion, and you find him off-putting and extreme.
I also feel very sorry for the man, as a human. This video may have been a public eye-opener, but the book shows how everyone's eyes could have been just blind for a long time. All the signs have been there all along.
So all I learned about this rockstar I loved to hear belt out songs was that he is a lost and troubled soul with an extreme devotion of God and his love. I am highly empathetic to his tragic life as it is now.

3/5

  2. I like Creed for the intensity, which probably comes out of such a troubled life. Not sure I like what that says about me.

  3. Wasn't Creed originally a Christian Rock band before it went mainstream? At any rate I don't think he has quite come full circle but I hope he will get better.

  5. I have been listening to Creed for a long time now and enjoy their music. I always thought that Scott Stapp acted pretty high and mighty, though.

How Reading Helps Your Brain

The brain is one of the most complex biological structures that scientists and doctors have ever encountered. It is like a machine that runs non-stop that has the computing power to be able to make very complex decisions and experience unexplainable phenomena like emotions. The brain controls every other organ in the body so it is arguably the most important one. Unfortunately, probably due to its brilliance, it is a fairly vulnerable structure that can and does degrade over time.
Many experts agree that one of the best ways to maintain the health of the brain is to keep it active, just as you would with your muscles to keep them strong. There are also a number of nutrients that are very important to maintaining a healthy brain and preventing its decline.
