Review of I STILL BELIEVE by Jeremy Camp

Rating: 5 out 5

I became a fan of Christian music artist when I was a teenager in youth ministry. In a world of Christian music where everything seemed to sound the same, Jeremy Camp stood out as unique. I was aware that Camp had gone through some real personal tragedy when his wife died of ovarian cancer not long after they had married. His music reflected both an acknowledgment of life's deepest pains and a God who steps into our pain to bring comfort.

I STILL BELIEVE is Camp's memoir chronicling his beginnings in a home where his parents found faith, to struggles in his youth, to finding his calling in music and meeting and marrying his first wife Melissa, to Melissa's tragic battle with cancer. From there Camp reveals his journey with God to heal from Melissa's death, continuing his musical calling, and finding love again and starting a family.

Camp's story is encouraging because of the comfort he found in his relationship with God. I STILL BELIEVE is a great journey through Camp's story.
