Sinner’s Creed is the uncensored memoir of Scott Stapp, Grammy Award-winning leader of the multiplatinum rock band CREED. Raised by an abusive stepfather, Scott was always aware of God's presence in his life, 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 recommitment 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.

The book is believable from the first word. I'm glad to finally know what really went on with Creed. I cheered and I cried for a little boy who should have had better. But, I am so grateful that poets heart is finding its way.
I got this book really wanting to just hear the creed stuff but from the very beginning you get caught up in the struggle that is Scott's life. I really had a different view about scott and the rest of creed after hearing this book!
Gripping, heartbreaking, victory
Scott, I really can relate to his journey to find God, through Jesus Christ. Steve Stapp (Scott's father) gives Christians a really bad name, he really messed with Scott's head. I wanted to ring his neck.
Scott ( as a reader and performer he is exceptional !! ) It was the best performance I personally have heard I have listened to approximately 25 books so far
Yes It made me laugh and cry at times. I felt like i was there with Scott going through it with him. the struggle that he has gone through with his walk with Christ is my struggle as well.
My wife is listening to it now. Her Father was just like Scott's dad (Steve). This book has already helped with being willing to forgive her dad and his memory. (died of Lou Gerigs decease in 2000) THANK YOU SCOTT for Sharing your painful memories with us I Cant tell you how much they have meant.
Of the books I've listened to, this one was one of my first full listens and it kept my attention throughout and one of the best listens
Scott's struggle throughout his life and how God played a role in his life.
When Scott fell from the hotel balcony and T.I. found him causing him to have his aha moment and open up his life to the possibilities of letting God in.
