Christian recording artist Jeremy Camp has written songs that have touched millions of lives. His lyrics reveal a heart that’s been broken and a faith that has been tested and restored.

In I Still Believe, Jeremy shares, with unflinching candor and emotion, the extraordinary story behind his award-winning lyrics–from his impoverished childhood, rebellious teenage years, and spiritual awakening at Bible College, to the tragic loss of his first wife, Melissa, to cancer and the heart-wrenching spiritual journey that followed–a journey that reignited Jeremy’s faith, inspired some of his most beloved songs, and paved the way for a second chance at love with his second wife, Adrienne.

This memoir is a must-read for Jeremy Camp fans everywhere, and an inspiring, encouraging read for anyone who has ever experienced loss.

Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble

This memoir takes its title from the first song that country music recording star Jeremy Camp wrote after the cancer death of his 21-year-old wife in 2001. I Still Believe tells that tragic, faith-shaking story, but achieves even more, marking the trajectory of an award-winning lyricist and minister's son whose struggles and realizations are rendered with striking candor. A religious memoir that stands on it.

    Highly Recommend

    I bought this book and read it within a few days. It is a remarkable story about Jeremy and how his faithfullness and belief in God, the creator of all, allowed him to grieve the passing of his wife. It is truly remarkable for someone who has gone through what he has to still believe and to share his story about it. This is one of those books though that makes you think, and doesn't easily leave you once you are done reading it. I loved this book but I do caution that it is a tear jerker. I have found myself numerous times crying because of the circumstances Jeremy was in. It is a great testament to those who are down and out of the power of God.

    This will stay with me a long, long time

    I've been a fan of Jeremy Camp for years! I have all his albums and I've been aware of his testimony. Being familiar with his story, I guess I just still had questions of "how" he has such faith in what would be such a painful place? I was curious about his upbringing, what influenced him to be the admiral man he is today,did he ever stray, how he and Adie met, did she ever struggle with insecurities and comparing? Jeremy has such an inspiring story and testimony! He writes in a very entertaining and interesting way that fully kept my attention engaged at all times! I cried for he and his family, a lot, but it was worth every tear:) this was a book that not only was incredibly interesting but impacted my faith on a deeper level. I am SO thankful that Jeremy has shared his life with so many through his experience, his touching music, and now this beautiful book.

    I love Jeremy Camp¿s music, but wasn¿t aware that he had lost hi

    I love Jeremy Camp’s music, but wasn’t aware that he had lost his wife before reading this book.

    This book has such a powerful message. I am thankful to Camp for sharing his story and the way that God has called to him throughout his life. I especially liked reading about the story behind the song, I Still Believe. I don’t think I will ever listen to that song quite the same way again. Sometimes it is difficult to remember when listening to our favorite artists on the radio that they are real people that experience heartache and disappointment, just like we do. This book shows Camp as a real person.

    This book is filled with emotion – searching for God’s plan, happiness, sadness, thankfulness, and how God’s grace and mercy is always present in our lives. I loved reading about how Camp also experienced God’s restorative work in his life; despite the fact that he lost his first wife to a terminal illness, God blessed him with another wife and children. In the midst of our sorrows, God has a plan!

    If you don’t know anything about Jeremy Camp or have never listened to his music, after reading his story, you might become a fan! This book is filled with faith and encouragement.

    I received a complimentary copy of this book from Tyndale Publishing in exchange for my honest review. All opinions are my own.

    Inspiring

    I bought this book because I was going to his concert and wanted to read about his life. I was not expecting it to knock my socks off, but it did! My adult son died about a year ago and I have been struggling with the pain of that loss. Jeremy told us step by step what happened to him and how he grew closer to God through his wife's sickness and death. It's not just a matter of accepting God will it's knowing the Creator of the universe and abiding in His love throughout tragedies and through every moment of our lives.
    I have bought this book for friends who loved it also. It is truly INSPIRING!!!

    This was a quick read and an interesting story. I was already a fan of Camp's music, but was not familiar with his story of losing his wife.

    I am thankful to Camp for sharing his story and the message behind it. Life isn't always sunshine and butterflies, but God is faithful and uses painful experiences to mold us and teach us. I liked reading about the story behind the song.

    This book is filled with emotion - searching for God's plan, happiness, sadness, thankfulness, and how God's grace and mercy is always present in our lives.

    If you are a fan of Jeremy Camp, or like to read autobiographies, you will enjoy this book. If you or someone you know is coping with a terminal illness, you will enjoy this book.

    Jeremy Camp, award-winning singer and songwriter, wrote this book about his life, starting with his childhood and discussing the death of his first wife, his music, and his finding love again. Throughout the book, he tells how he still believes in God, even when trouble comes. Both my husband and I read this book, and both of us thought it was very good. What a good reminder this book is of always believing in God, no matter what the circumstances.

    Singer-Songwriter Jeremy Camp's songs are fairly well-known in t

    Singer-Songwriter Jeremy Camp's songs are fairly well-known in the Christian music industry (and even outside of it), and his autobiography shares the backstory behind the music and songs.  Jeremy has lived a varied and interesting life to date, some would certainly say with more than his fair share of tragedy.  His journey is a great example of God working through even some very difficult times and how they have been used to encourage others.




    Jeremy begins the book with the story of his parents' journey to faith.  Although his parents were former drug users and truly had a miraculous experience to meet Jesus, he grew up in a Christian home.  For a number of reasons they lived not only paycheck to paycheck and many times (almost) went without, yet God always provided - cars, food, clothing, etc.  This certainly shaped Jeremy and contributed to his spiritual growth as well, as he saw some very specific miracles!  I won't retell the entire book here, but you can easily see that God was strengthening his faith even then which prepared him for some of the difficult things to come.




    Much has been told about Jeremy's first wife, Melissa, dying of cancer shortly after their wedding, and it is a challenging and yet inspiring story.  Jeremy gives a great deal of insight to this part of his journey as well as shares how some of his hit songs were written.  He also details his meeting, courtship, and marriage to Adrienne and their family as it is today.  On a personal note, I thought it was fun to see someone who I knew from church camp mentioned in the book (a rep from his record label).




    I read this very quickly - it was engaging and easy to read.  You too will be inspired and touched by this story.

    I Still Believe is a great recounting of Jeremy Camp¿s struggles

    I Still Believe is a great recounting of Jeremy Camp’s struggles and victories. The heartwarming story had me laughing and crying all along the way. He speaks very openly and honestly about his feelings and emotions following the death of his first wife, Melissa. In his descriptions, the reader really comes to know Melissa and feel like they’re traveling the journey along with Jeremy. It was encouraging to see a family who lives a life serving God. I was also encouraged by Adrienne, Jeremy’s wife, and the way she handles coming into a family after Melissa’s death. Her devotion and support are amazing. A very good book which brings Jeremy’s already awesome songs to life.

    An incredible book of Jesus love and mercy. Jeremy shares his life of growing up in poverty, marrying very young and losing his wife to cancer. He was very candid and learning to walk by faith, like all Christians are.

    I had heard most of this story before, but only short clips of the it. Although he and his wife were not married very long, the heartbreak over losing her so quickly and so young had to have been devastating. And it was, you can hear his pain in the songs that he sings. And I think his pain is so well said that it almost doesn't matter what type of pain you are in, you gain something from it. I have a friend that doesn't really care for his music (which I LOVE), but I told her to just read the lyrics. This man is pouring out his heart to God. He is in anguish, just like David in the Psalms. And I know for me, I just hear the music and you can feel God responding to you through your pain, to know that there is hope. And that hope lies in God and Jesus alone. This is a very short book, but it is still very well written.

    Christian recording artist, Jeremy Camp, honestly shares his life story of growing up in poverty, marrying young, and then losing his new wife to cancer. Jeremy's story - and Melissa's - is a story of faith. Jeremy shares how God used this tragedy to shape this life and music. Like the title says, Jeremy is learning to walk by faith - like all Christians are. This book is an emotional memoir, and I'm glad to have read it.

    I've been a fan of Jeremy Camp's music for a while now. The first time I heard his testimony, I remember being blown away by the strength of his faith. And as I listened to his music, the lyrics were even more meaningful knowing the tragedy that had inspired them.

    I'm so glad that Jeremy has now written an account of his first wife's cancer and subsequent death and how the Lord used those experiences to grow him in his faith journey. I Still Believe is a moving story of faith, hope, tragedy, and God's faithfulness through it all.
