In 2011, Campbell also wrote his first book, A Place I Didn’t Want to Go: My Victory Over Cancer, which chronicles his physical and mental struggles during cancer. Three years later, he wrote Glorified Sickness: Honoring God Through Illness.

Campbell’s latest book, Bullet Points: Absolute Essentials for Facing a Fallen World, is a collection of his life experiences and lessons learned based upon the Biblical passages of Romans 12:9-21. All of his publications are available for purchase through
