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.

I recommend this book to anyone who admires Scott, either as a person, singer or as a writer. He is so very talented, yet humble and honest. There are so many similarities between us and amongst the timeline of our lives. I feel so connected to him and this book brought me even closer. His words comfort me when I am down. Bipolar disorder is a lifelong struggle and SS has shown me the way. I am forever grateful. Glory be to God! Rock on! Heartsonfire~
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.
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.
I was always moved by Creed's music! I loved the overall sound but even more I understood and related so intensely to the lyrics!! I always wanted to understand the struggle behind them....what brought this man to write these powerful words?? This book was exactly what I wanted and in many ways needed to hear! I will forever have this Brother in Christ named Scott Stapp, I will pray for him and his family always! Thank you for your testimony, for your "Sinner's Creed" Scott, I pray it will bring others to Christ!! Run the race with patience and perseverance! Hold on to that Wonderful Godly Wife God blessed you with, she is most certainly God's gift to you!!
FANTASTIC BOOK! A BLESSING TO READ!
I listen to alot of rock bio's and this was not the normal sex,drug & rock and roll more or less a Bible lesson I'm all for getting right with Jesus but cmon, the whole book amen to you Scott but disappointed
As a long time Creed fan and son of a pastor, I was really excited to listen to this. It's very informative but at the same time, I thought it was going to be a lot better than it was. If you're a big Creed/Scott Stapp fan, this is a must. If you're a casual listener, I'd leave it up to you. Overall, 3 stars is pretty good.
