Book Review: Jeremy Camp -- "I Still Believe"

Award winning singer/songwriter Jeremy Camp has shared his struggles through his music, but now this two-time Male Vocalist of the Year returns with a biography titled after his hit song "I Still Believe." In I Still Believe: Discovering Hope and Healing In The Midst of Life’s Deepest Valleys, Jeremy shares his testimony beginning from his parent’s conversion, all the way through the release of his latest album We Cry Out: The Worship Project.

Through the 145 pages of I Still Believe, Jeremy focuses on meeting his first wife Melissa. Though sick with a stomach cyst, God confirmed to Jeremy that Melissa was the one to become his wife. Jeremy recounts the heart-breaking story of finding out that the cyst had turned into stomach cancer, and how only through relying on God and worshiping Him through the tough times, him and Melissa made it through. He shares about Melissa’s slow death, and how his hurt was healed through meeting Adrienne, then from the Christian group Benjamin Gate. He shares how God miraculously boosted his music career which started from simple strumming on guitars. Ending with the release of his latest album, he shares how God has healed his hurt and brokenness and brought him through with hope, and how God has used the story of his wife Melissa to bring hope to thousands around the world.

Jeremy Camp’s I Still Believe book was so hard to put down. I enjoyed reading how God brought Jeremy out of his problems and taught him how to trust in God even when he had no strength to go on. But more than that, I enjoyed hearing from Jeremy’s heart. Sharing some of the lyrics from his popular radio songs gives so much more meaning to such tracks as “I Still Believe” and “Walk By Faith.” This is most definitely a book that Jeremy Camp fans will want to pick up, but also people going through tough times who need hope to survive through life’s storms. Jeremy Camp is a very talented writer, and his story will no doubt give hope to millions of readers!
