Free (nook/Kindle/Christianbook) Hip-Hop Redemption [Christian Pop Culture Study]
Hip-Hop Redemption: Finding God in the Rhythm and the Rhyme by Ralph Basui Watkins is a faith-based pop-culture study, free courtesy of Christian publisher Baker's Academic imprint. I have to say, I like that they're offering more academic freebies, but then I like academic freebies in general.
Currently free @ B&N and Amazon UK, will likely drop in the main store and show up at Christian Book but only for a day, as Baker non-fiction freebies tend to be very short-lived.
Hip-hop culture is experiencing a sea change today that has implications for evangelism, worship, and spiritual practices. Yet Christians have often failed to interpret this culture with sensitivity.
Sociologist, preacher, pop-culture expert, and DJ Ralph Watkins understands that while there is room for a critique of mainstream hip-hop and culture, by listening more intently to the music's story listeners can hear a prophet crying out, sharing the pain of a generation that feels as though it hasn't been heard. His accessible, balanced engagement reveals what is inherently good and redeeming in hip-hop and rap music and uses that culture as a lens to open up the power of the Bible for ministry to a generation.
