Jake Luhrs, vocalist for the band August Burns Red, has released a book called “Mountains”. All proceeds from the book will go towards Heart Support, a community for metal music fans to discover the strength to overcome adversity and trials. Jake started up the community years ago and it has done some truly great work.

If you want to read the book, it’s currently available for purchase on Amazon. Enjoy!

Here’s the official synopsis of the book:

Conquering a mountain begins with one step.

At the base, we know that choosing to climb the mountain will cause pain and hardship. But that’s also the trade off. Conquer the mountain and stand at the top weary, but satisfied? Or stand at the base wishing you were at the top?

Mountains is a devotional for men and women who want to hear real stories of faith, struggle, defeat, and wins and are tired of Christian cliches and platitudes. Follow Grammy-nominated musician, Jake Luhrs of August Burns Red, as he guides you through the Mountains he’s faced in life, and came out stronger in his relationship with God.

Along the way, he’ll encourage you to face your demons, keep the faith, grow in love, and fight to reach the top with twenty-five handpicked Scriptures which encouraged him through his darkest valleys.

Along the journey, you’ll realize it isn’t the mountain that’s important, but who you’ve become after climbing it.

The band themselves had the following to say of this via Instagram:
