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.

The beauty of his books is that he doesn't hide any of it. You can learn from his past without the enduring some of the lumps that he took. He's quite an inspiration to me because he never quits. He gets knocked down and then he begins to look for the lessons to be found in the difficult situations. He's happy to share these lessons with his readers.
Why not learn and be encouraged by someone who's been there, so you don't have to go there? Great book, I whole heartedly recommend it.
I laughed, I cried, I opened my eyes more than a few times in awe, & it sparked in me spiritual & mind renewal & the desire to re-connect & become more intimate with God. And I'm a Christian already! You'd think that after all the Christian books I have on my shelve & have read, and how many sermons I've heard & take notes on over the years, and how many times I have felt God's presence & power in my life as well as the miraculous changes he's made in it, that I'd have this relationship thing with Jesus down already. Yet as a Christian, Brian's book touched me & confirmed to me on many levels how much more I still have to go to get down my relationship with Christ.
But.....he did it in a way that didn't feel discouraging to learn that, but rather gave me hope like no other Christian book has done to get up & try again & never give up no matter what. And that as I already knew, it is a process that we have to surrender to to allow God to be made complete in us. It was very uplifting to be reminded of that.
If I had all the money needed to buy copies of this book to everyone in the world, I so would! Just out of love for God & the desire for all the many lost people out there to be found, just like Brian.
It's probably gonna sound weird to say without knowing him, but I feel so much love for this guy! Its so hard not to! I have the most respect & admiration for him & just really wish I could meet him again (I met him once at a signing) to tell him in person & hug him for as long as I can. But I'm a wimp (just like he used to be) & if I did meet him again I'd probably just keep it all to myself & just smile & say "great to me you!" like I did the first time, lol. Seems like I would probably need the power of the Holy Spirit to come thru me to allow me to release the admiration while keeping composure. I pray that one day we can get him to come to our church.
Thank u Brian Welch. For all of u :) May God continue to fill your life with his almighty love, power, grace & favor! God bless u & much, much love!
Here is a little more scriptural depth for the new Christian or the old timer- we all deal with issues.
The book is written in a form of a devotional. A scripture for every day and a story or Brian's explanation of a passage. Sometimes it would speak just in my heart and I recognise myself doing the same as Brian, thinking the same way as him. I was no rock star when I got saved, but I had big problems with drugs and was hiding behind them. So I can relate.
I recommend this book to everyone who wants to hear a simple but very Holy Spirit inspired teaching from a guy who is crazy about music.
