Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

Five years ago, Brian “Head” Welch found God, walked away from a wildly successful career as guitarist for the heavy metal band Korn, and wrote a best-seller about his crisis and conversion (Save Me from Myself, 2005). Five years later, Welch is ostensibly older, wiser, and, as the title of this suggests, stronger and ready to share some of that hard-earned wisdom in what he calls “not your typical devotional book.” Welch offers 40 biblical passages that have particular relevance to his life and spiritual journey. Each receives its own chapter, with a related anecdote from the author’s recent history—these stories range from the hilarious to the harrowing—told in an engagingly straightforward, if sometimes awkward, style. The biblical excerpts are often from more modern interpretations, lending them clarity while also fitting the book’s tone. Illustrations highlight the entries with an aggressive clarity that echoes Welch’s brutal honesty. The tell-all redemption memoir might not be the most original genre, but Welch does it well, presenting the reader with a raw and heartfelt diary of his spiritual journey thus far. --Taina Lagodzinski

From the Back Cover

New York Times bestselling author Brian "Head" Welch returns with a raw and unforgettable journey through his life with Christ and the scripture that has helped lead him into deeper intimacy with God

In 2007, Brian “Head” Welch, the former lead guitaristfor the hard-rock band Korn, shared the dramaticstory of his music, drug addiction, and miraculousredemption through Jesus Christ in his New YorkTimes bestselling book, Save Me from Myself.Inspiring and compelling, this book began a newchapter in his life, as he acknowledged the mistakes ofhis past and looked forward to a brighter future withGod at his side.

Now in Stronger, Head continues to share hispersonal life with an unflinching forty-day devotional ofscriptures that have helped him to mold his Christianfaith and find light during life’s darkest moments.Written with passion and openness, this forty-dayjourney offers stories from Head’s past and present,as he speaks candidly about his bouts of depressionsince finding God, his struggles against the darknessas he’s tried to understand his faith, and how, throughthese times of weakness, God’s written word has beenone of the keys to making him stronger than he’sever been. Applying both the Old and New Testaments to every aspect of his life—from his time with Korn tohis new solo career to his life-altering decisions tohis relationship with his daughter—Head details how,no matter what the issue, God has always provided theguidance he’s needed to become a stronger person.

One part journal chronicling his evolving relationshipwith God, one part spiritual testament to the undeniablestrength of the Bible, Stronger is a devotional unlike anyother—both a moving tribute to the transformative powerof the word and a no-holds-barred look at what it meansto give yourself completely to Jesus Christ.

"Stronger" is Brian 'Head' Welch's best book to date. In it he flays himself open, goes where few dare, raw soul, truth from the gut, over-the-edge real. But that's Head. With guitar or pen he always delivers. This is not a book only for Korn fans or Christians. In "Save Me from Myself" Brian wrote of his experiences. In "Stronger" Brian reveals his inner man, his hard questions and battles - and the God he met Who's big enough. Head didn't get stuck in stardom, money, self or religiosity; he's not static or fanatic, but an artist who ever journeys onward, forward into more of life. And he lets us go with him. "Stronger" reads more like a personal, mutual, really deep conversation. As Brian looks at himself we are compelled to look at ourselves. Joshua Clay's bold artwork matches Brian's boldness and paints what we feel beyond words. Forget the 40 days, you won't be able to put it down - then go back and read it day by day and you'll see even more in it. Saying more will be a spoiler....

I was a teenager when Korn hit the music community, and we all partied and screwed our lives up. I also found God about five years ago, and looking back on his honest confessions of his actions is awesome! I highly recommend this book!!

Brain's books are so inspirational and so real. I buy all his books, and buy more than one, to give away. Great for any age!! A really good gift for somebody that knows him and knows that he was in the band Korn. He demonstates what the power of God can do in your life, and how it has changed him.
I really like Brian and enjoy his books and music.

This book is great, God talked to me in a direct way every day I read it.

Also Brian opens his heart and let us know how God can bring beauty from pain and ashes.

This book is a great follow-up to "Save Me From Myself". Brian "Head" Welch's story of conversion, told through his first book and the concordant CD of the same title, were the final push for me to finally turn my own life around. My story of starting out in faith, falling out of faith into the toxic metal and rock band environment, to coming back to faith is similar to his so his example of is one I follow and seek to emulate. This book is a great daily reflection guide to life on the path of faith with it's referenced scripture passage, story/reflection related to the theme of that passage, and final words of advice staying on the path.

I recommend this book very much!

"Stronger" is a devotional that does strengthen your faith in Christ. "Head", the author, tells his stories and explains how the verse of the day applied and continues to apply to every day life. He is a famous rock star, but the lessons given in this book shows that he relates to any one in any walk of life. I've seen this book work in the life of a depressed and troubled young man of 15 years old when no other book could reach him.

I can't tell you how happy I am to have read this book! It seemed like every day I read it Brian would be able to teach or explain something to me about God/Jesus that would absolutely blow my mind! Combine this with the often very personal life stories he would share in relation to each passage and it made the book amazing. I truly did finish reading his book feeling much stronger and personal in my relationship with God. Its one I am certainly going to be re-reading in the years to come.Perhaps one of the coolest things about it is that it doesn't just reach out to one group of people. I'm a man in my twenties who loves heavy metal, weight lifting, tattoos ...that whole thing and yet my mom, who does not listen to metal and has different religious views than me, got interested in his first book Save Me From Myself and now is eagerly waiting check this book out now that I'm done reading it. Don't think you have to be a guy into metal or look like a biker to enjoy this. This guy (Brian "Head" Welch) is so humble,bluntly honest,and completely down-to-earth in sharing his life with you; I've never encountered a more "real" Christian. If you're unsure about God, want to hear some rock star stories, you want to deepen your relationship with God, or maybe all the above, then I can't recomend this book more.
