For those of you fighting the impulse to giggle or criticize with visions of yellow and black spandex puffy hair and guy liner dancing before your eyes skip this review because neither it nor the book are really for youI came to the book as a fan of Michael Sweet than Stryper I missed their hey day in the 80 s as I was of a WhiteheartPetra guy at the time still am But I ve enjoyed Sweet s solo work a great deal and I happen to think that Stryper has never sounded better than on Murder by Pride and No More Hell to Pay both very recent works The book is definitely a page turner not because the writing is stellar it s not supposed to be or the stories are so dramatic they re really not I was just very surprised by how much I relate to him from striving for excellence a deep devotion to but somewhat fitful relationship with fellow Christians the sensitivities of a creative personality that drive others mad at times and the shock of discovering one is actually good at one does and wants to constantly improve Multiple times throughout the book I thought I get this guyI found myself whipping through the book fascinated with just how much a 50 year old successful rock star has with a 37 year old doctoral student who doesn t play a single instrument and whose successes are far personal than publicWhy would I recommend it to others Maybe you can relate as well Maybe you need a fresh shot of faith by reading about Stryper s early faith filled years Maybe you ve lost or simply matured beyond such simple faith and you re riddled with doubts and uestions though you still at least WANT to believe Maybe your financial professional or personal life is in some sort of crisisMaybe blast it you just love hard rock and you have memories having Bibles with Stryper logos thrown at your headThere s something here for everyone and there s also some things here and there that may disappoint The title is deliberately chosen A very real relatable human being emerges in these pages not just the older version of the guy cavorting around in spandex under a bouffant of feathery hair fossilized in cans of hairspray
