Product Description

Hip hop speaks in a voice that is sometimes gruff, sometimes enraged, sometimes despairing, sometimes hopeful.

Hip hop is the voice of forgotten streets laying claim to the high life of rims and timbs and threads and bling.

Hip hop speaks in the muddled language of would-be prophets--mocking the architects of the status quo and stumbling in the dark toward a blurred vision of a world made right.

What is hip hop? It's a cultural movement with a traceable theological center. Daniel White Hodge follows the tracks of hip-hop theology and offers a path from its center to the cross, where Jesus speaks truth.

Editorial Reviews

"Daniel White Hodge engages in deep listening, hearing the authentic cry for justice inherent in Hip Hop. He samples the sharpest scholars to forge his own sound---raw, gritty, real and hopeful. Give The Soul of Hip Hop plenty of play."
"When most scholars, critics and religious voices have taken a reductionist approach to Hip Hop culture and music, Dr. Daniel White Hodge reveals the complexity, spiritualism and inspiration that shape Hip Hop. As a Hip Hop pastor, Dr. Hodge successfully connects the transforming philosophies that exist between Christianity and Hip Hop theology. Insightfully, he underscores the distinctions between the commercialized lyrics and behavior that permeate mainstream media and the more consciousness-raising messages in the content and rhythms of grass-roots Hip Hop. Dr. Hodge boldly invites the reader to contextualize the life and activism of the biblical Jesus in order to appreciate the collective power and relevance of Hip Hop culture."
