Review: Still Growing by Kirk Cameron

Still Growing by Kirk Cameron

Publisher: Regal
Pages: 256
Format: book
Buy the Book: Amazon

Kirk Cameron is best known for his role as loveable teenage troublemaker Mike Seaver on the award-winning TV series Growing Pains, but his rise to fame and fortune is only part of his incredible story. In this intimate autobiography, Kirk opens up about his early years, his rocket to stardom, his life-changing encounter with Jesus and the hard choices he’s made along the way to live in the Way of the Master. Fans will get an up-close and personal look at what drives the former teen-magazine heartthrob and find out how God and family became the secrets behind his celebrated smile. In his own words, Kirk shares how he’s still growing—even through the triumphs and temptations of his Hollywood career.

Kritters Thoughts:  Kirk Cameron is a pretty famous actor, even though he hasn't done a ton of recent mainstream work.  Recently he is known for his activism in regards to his faith and the few controversies around his actions he has taken in defense of his faith.  I was excited to read this book and read his story before Growing Pains and his most recent moments.

I grew up on Growing Pains and remember hearing a few of the dramatic behind the scenes stories, so to hear his side of the story was interesting.  The reader must realize that this is only one side of the whole story.  As I see Kirk Cameron as this perfect Christian, it was interesting to read about his childhood and it humanized him a little.

Although I still think he is very extreme and polarizing, I enjoyed this one.  

Rating: enjoyable but didn't leave me wanting more
