For The First Time In His Highly Successful Career Spanning 30 Years, This Music Luminary Shares Intimate Details of His Personal Journey, His Family Life, And Stories Behind His Most Beloved Songs

In a music career that spans an astounding 30 years, Steven Curtis Chapman is the most awarded artist in Christian music history. He has received five GRAMMYs®, 58 Gospel Music Association Dove Awards, an American Music Award, 48 No. 1 singles, and has more than eleven million albums sold and eight RIAA-certified gold or platinum albums to his credit. Now, he has taken the step to share his life story with his memoir, Between Heaven and the Real World. The book, written with New York Times best-selling author Ken Abraham, is slated to hit shelves and all digital platforms on March 7, 2017 with Revell, a division of Baker Publishing Group.

For decades Steven Curtis Chapman’s music and message have brought hope and inspiration to millions of people around the world, and for the first time this music luminary is ready to share intimate details of his own personal journey. The aptly titled book will take the reader inside Chapman’s childhood in Paducah, KY and along his amazing journey that has carried him to far higher heights and more devastating depths than he ever could have imagined. He shares with startling honesty about the places on his journey where he has wrestled with the unfixable things, even his own insecurities, only to find much of the inspiration for his life and his music in those very places. He also reveals honest and vulnerable stories about his 32-year marriage to the love of his life, Mary Beth, and their family – through their children and the miracle of adoption.

Poignant, gut-wrenchingly honest, yet always hopeful, Chapman offers no sugary solutions to life’s toughest questions. Yet, he continues to trust God to one day fix what is unfixable in this life. Between Heaven and the Real World presents a backstage look at the down-to-earth superstar that will touch the readers’ lives and fill their hearts with hope.

    I loved Mary Beth’s book and have been hoping that one day SCC would put his story in book form too. Dream come true!

    I look forward to this one. It should be a good one. Getting to learn some of the stories behind some of the songs will be fun to see if my interpretation was anywhere near his when he wrote them, probably not is my guess. It is sure to be a “Great Adventure”! Let’s Go!

    Finally picked up your book. Only 1/3 into it. Always always loved the transparency you and your wife have had with others. I love soooo much that we share the blessing of being a vice on this earth for our good good God. Keep it up!
