The Zen of Beard Trimming: Stories of Punk Rock, Poverty, and the Search for Peace
By: NorCal Press
The book chronicles seven years of C.J.'s travels, painstakingly detailed in this memoir. Punk rock meets leaving pastoral ministry, meets Scandinavian models, meets a mismatched cast of unlikely characters and scenarios in a fearless, brutally honest story of the time honored search for (meaning, love, peace, an apartment, food and a microphone that works) all while struggling to find his place within the kingdom of God and living within the silent stigma of having a disability amidst American Evangelicalism.

He keeps a blog called "The Running Search" (cjcampbell.tumblr.com ) where most recently he chronicled his 75 mile walk, from Rockford to Evanston, IL, to raise disability awareness.
