Uplifting  Jan 18, 2007
Being a Matthew Ward fan since the 70's I was so excited when I heard he had written his story. I was not disappointed! I read it out loud to my family and we all enjoyed it. I was entertained, encouraged and uplifted. I would highly recommend this to anyone who is familiar with Second Chapter and Matthew Ward. Well, even if someone is not familiar it would be a good time to get to know him and his music!
 
Definitely a Good Read for "Jesus Music" Fans  Sep 30, 2006
In the interest of full disclosure, I was a "sometimes" fan of the music of The 2nd Chapter of Acts (especially the early stuff), and promoted a concert with them and Barry McGuire in Central Ohio back in the mid-Seventies. In fact, Matthew stayed at my house when they were in town (as they were in the habit of doing in each town at the time). I was then, and remain today, a huge fan of his amazing singing voice. While I hadn't been following his career too closely over the past 15 years, it was still with great interest that I read this book (devouring it within a day, despite my busy schedule). If you were a fan of Christian music in the Seventies and Eighties, you know that things were very different then than they are today, and even within that musical subset, The 2nd Chapter of Acts was quite unique as a group. I knew some of their background, but the book gives a lot more infomation about their parents' deaths at an early age, and how Matt (and his sister Nellie) were shipped off to California to live with their older sister Annie and her new husband, Buck Herring. There is a very honest retelling of Matthew's sometimes difficult relationship with Buck, who was pretty controlling, and it's very interesting to see how the group came to be, and the history of how things developed over the next couple of decades. There is also a fairly in-depth account of Matt's frightening experience with cancer in the Nineties (which involved both surgery and chemo). I can't imagine that there's a huge audience out there for this book...you'd have to have been a fan of the band for it to make much sense. But I certainly enjoyed it, and would definitely recommend it to fans of the band from so many years ago.
 
A Great Read  Sep 5, 2006
This book is the autobiography of Matthew Ward. It was Matthew and his two sister's that made up the popular 70's and 80's group The 2nd Chapter Of Acts that transformed Christian Music forever. In "My 2nd Chapter", Matthew shares with us, in his humorous and honest way, stories from his life dating back to his early childhood, his days with the 2nd Chapter of Acts, his battle with cancer, his views on the music scene today, how God continues to change his spiritual perspective and what he is up to these days. I highly recommend it to all esspically Matthew Ward and 2nd Chapter of Acts fans. Being a huge fan myself, I loved this book. I hope you all enjoy this book as much as I have. It will encourage you to seek the Lord and totally surrender your life. His life is a great example of what God can do when someone gives it all.
