Between Heaven and the Real World: My Story is a the story of the life of Steven Curtis Chapman, the well know Christian singer/songwriter. From childhood, music has been both a refuge and a release for Steven. With humor and humility, he offers a backstage look at his early days on the road and his wild ride to the top of the charts. Discover the stories behind some of his best-loved songs. Walk with him as he and his wife, Mary Beth, navigate the joys and trials of marriage and family. Cheer for his return to the stage after doubting he could ever sing again. And SEE God in the aftermath of the tragic death of their five-year-old daughter Maria.
Having grown up with Steven's music and knowing just a tiny bit about the tragic death of his daughter made me excited and interested to read this book. And I was not disappointed. It was so interesting to learn not only more about the little bit I knew, but also to learn about what led him to be a musician in the first place. The story of how he met his wife, what eventually led them to adoption and how their marriage survived the loss of child is powerful. I also really enjoyed learning the stories behind so many of the songs I grew up listening too. This was a great memoir and a wonderful testament to the power of God who is able to fix all things.
