Publisher's Summary

How do we know what's true when there are so many differing voices telling us what to do? After traveling the world for 23 years in a rock band, John L. Cooper has noticed one consistent issue: People are desperately confused. If you want to know what's true, you must go to the source of all truth! 

Awake & Alive to Truth tackles the reigning philosophies of our day of post-modernism, relativism, and the popular view of the goodness of man and combats these viewpoints by standing on the absolute truth of the word of God. Awake & Alive to Truth answers some of the most asked questions in modern culture. Go on a journey through some John Cooper's personal stories, the doctrine of original sin, the authority of Scripture, the danger of trusting your emotions, and end with the greatest news possible: God wants to rescue you from the chaos and the darkness and bring you into his glorious light. 

About the author: John L. Cooper is the lead vocalist, bassist, and songwriter/producer for Skillet, one of the best-selling rock bands of at the 21st century. The two-time Grammy Award-nominated, 12-time platinum band was inducted to Pandora's Billionaire club after garnering two billion streams, took home a Billboard music award, and more. Their breakout single "Monster" remains one of the most-streamed rock songs of all time with 285 million global audio streams. John and his wife, Korey, have been touring together for the entirety of their 23 years of marriage and live in Kenosha, WI, with their two children. John and Korey are passionate about sharing the truth of Christ to the world through music, the Cooper Stuff Podcast, two Skillet graphic novels entitled Eden and Eden: The Aftermath, and now through his debut book, Awake & Alive to Truth.

Perfectly written for an Everyman

John Cooper did a wonderful job of speaking Gods truth in a way that is understandable and so very deep. He didn’t forget that not everyone knows all the things or all the words. He precisely expressed concepts that are speaking against the heresy filling the church and did it in a way that really not only addressed truth but the misconceptions and why they are wrong.

Skillet is awesome!

Excellent points! Particularly loved him pointing out that culture is bent on believing that God is there to give us all these good things making this belief an idol.

A great book for this confused generation.

After growing up seeing Skillet perform when they first started to taking my kids to their concerts now, I have always been proud of how they continue to pour the gospel into their music and fans. Thank you John for standing for God when tempted to take the easy road. This book is needed to help so many people make sense of the confusion this current world is intentionally creating. A world with no bearing in truth can easily be manipulated into believing anything. I pray the ministry of Skillet and the Coopers continues to grow.

Amazing!

This book is simply amazing. Cooper hit society’s issue on the nail head, explaining it clearly, lovingly, truthfully. I was mesmerized by every word he wrote/said.
There’s really nothing to add to such amazing work but to say, “ He who has ears to hear, let him hear.”
Nicely done, Cooper.

Great Book, Very enlightening

As someone who has followed Skillet since 2006 it was great to hear that John's heart still beats for Jesus even in more mainstream success. I remember how many late nights and teenage struggles Comatose got me through. This book was very enlightening to making sure as a Christian we don't hide our light to satisfy or make us more acceptable to the world. I saw skillet for the first time in the early 2000s at Ichthus Festival and have now taken my children to see them multiple times just this past year, most recently to the Xtreme Conference. Reading this book as a parent has given me even more confidence that I am exposing my kids to people and artist that truly have a fire for Christ. It's not about the band, music, or people but all for JESUS. See you at Winterjam Lexington!

Awake and Alive to Truth

I really like when an author narrates their own works. It gives the audible book such a different feel and understanding. Even more so with John Cooper! I love that Skillet as a band stands for belief in God and Jesus as our salvation! Make Heaven crowded!!!
