Review:

In his heartbreaking and touching book I Still Believe: Discovering Hope and Healing in the Midst of Lifeís Deepest Valleys, singer and songwriter Jeremy Camp presents his powerful testimony. He shares his struggles with loss and how the Lord brought him through, as well as the ways he has been blessed. Whereas he has walked through the valley, his steadfast devotion to God is what stands out, making this an impossible book to put down.

Although the book begins early in Campís life, the main focus is on his marriage and having to watch his wife fight with cancer. As his heart and mind are divided in an emotional and spiritual battle, he struggles with learning to trust God and His sovereignty. Even through the darkest days, weeks, and months, the Lord begins healing Campís heart, preparing him for a new beginning. Despite the trauma he has gone through, Camp has integrated surrender as an important part of his life, thereby remaining as soft clay.

Campís transparency and vulnerability will connect with the reader on a deep and intimate level. He has walked through a tragic time in his life and is a testament of hope, mercy, and the redemptive love of the Lord. Camp allows God to use this story to help others through similar circumstances and to offer encouragement along the way. His authenticity makes him easy to relate to in both the tragic and joyous times. As a result, he challenges readers to cling to the one who is always in control and to seek God first and foremost. His testimony beautifully portrays Psalm 73:26, which says, ďMy flesh and my heart may fail, but God is the strength of my heart and my portion forever.Ē

This moving book will keep readersí rapt attention, making them eager to learn the next part of Campís story. I Still Believe has the potential to impact greatly all who read it. Because bad things happen in this world that will cause us to wonder why?, everyone will be able to come away with something from Campís story. This is a book that is definitely worth buying, and is for readers of all ages. Ė Rachel Vachon, www.ChristianBookPreviews.com
