Coming Soon from Harper Collins Christian Publishing - Pre-Order inscribed copies now (the wait could be as long as 3 months)
Meet the ordinary but unqualified proof that you can accomplish whatever you want to accomplish in life, no matter how impossible it might seem. God planted that passion in your heart and will use it to make your life extraordinary. Against the odds. This is a riveting true story that dares you to dream.
Joe Camp showed his film to every studio in Hollywood and couldn’t get a distributor. Nobody wanted Benji. Nobody. Zero. The following summer Variety reported that the movie was the #3 box office gross of all movies for the year. In spite of all the folks who were so quick to say: You can’t do that! That’s impossible! Give up! Quit. Sit down. Shut up. Go away. If it could be done somebody would have done it already.
God’s hand at work. Up close and personal.
And what a story this book is as Joe Camp learns how every devastation that he believed to be surely the end of life as he knew it had to happen exactly as God orchestrated it or there never would’ve been a Benji. Or six Benji films. And there never would’ve been a best selling book changing the lives of horses all across the planet. Or a second love of his life after his Carolyn was called home.
God Only Knows is a true story that reads like a spellbinding novel, emotionally involving and packed with suspense while totally shredding our resistance to fully trusting God with our every devastation so that we might see our adversities for what they are: God molding us, strengthening us, teaching us how to get past the multitude of obstacles that any worthwhile dream will throw at us.
“My fondest hope is that this book might inspire you to mount a white horse and charge off after things worthwhile, to reach for heights heretofore perceived as unreachable, to adventure into uncharted waters with passion, honesty and God by your side… and leave this world a better place for your effort.” – Joe Camp

“Great story and written in a way that only Joe Camp can. Even with the most mundane of topics his writing style is both witty and enticing.

“Joe Camp’s new book, God Only Knows is a riveting read with an important message. Through Camp’s thought-provoking, well told, and courageously honest story, we have the privilege of witnessing another’s life at warp speed, to see how it all brilliantly plays out. It’s a detailed, emotional, complicated, exhilarating story, with an ending only God could have written! Several years ago I read Camp’s The Soul of a Horse – Life Lessons from the Herd and it blew me away. I loved this new book no less and highly recommend it!” – Raina Smith, What Raina’s Reading, OnlineRI.com
“I LOVED GOD ONLY KNOWS! Joe writes extremely well. The words flow so beautifully that it feels like I’m having a conversation with him. The feelings he brings out are wonderful…uplifting and sometimes sad. I think anyone who saw the Benji movies will want to own this book. The movies move so flawlessly from scene to scene that no one would ever know how much work was involved just to get that one shot and also all the work going from city to city to promote it. Towards the end of the book when he’s looking for a distributor I got so pumped! Why? Because when the ‘big wigs’ wouldn’t take on the film he never ever let anyone tell him he couldn’t do it. He soldiered on (and we are all glad and grateful that he did! ) For who benefits more than Joe from these movies? WE DO! And the good feeling from them radiates throughout the entire world. Thank God for such perseverance and tenacity. He knew within his soul that this could work… no ‘if, ands or buts’. That in itself is one of the greatest lessons of all… never give up! It’s too easy to lay down and die…..why not fight for what you believe in and help change the world? – Margaret Churchill – Reader

Not what I expected. - Tuesday, September 30, 2014“I am a great fan of Joe Camp, but was reluctant about this book as I am not religious and didn\'t want to read about God. I was pleasantly surprised, though. It is basically a Biography about his career and how his failures and successes were all part of a great scheme God had in mind for him. As always, no matter what the subject, Joe\'s stories are never boring. I consider him one of the best story tellers of our time.” - Dorothe Doyle
