    Awesome to see positive influences in hip hop!

    Here's a little insider-not-going-to-change-your-life-in-any-way piece of information: I have a thing for rap and hip hop. I have a feeling most of y'all won't be shocked. Back in the day, there was plenty to jam to: Snoop, Tupac, Biggie, Dre_I could go on and on. But I love hip hop and rap (along with all types of other music too!). But I always have. I love dancing to a good beat, whether at a wedding or all by myself in the car at a stoplight.

    To say the message of many of those artists isn't the best is the understatement of 2013.

    So after becoming a Christian in my late teens, I set out to find the same type of music but with a more positive message. There were many recommendations and attempts, but y'all, Christian rap & hip hop just wasn't good. (I'm not saying all, there were some good groups out there). It seemed to be borderline cheesy and that bummed me out. I recognize that it had to start somewhere and for those first trail blazers I am forever grateful.

    But times are a'changing! It's been really awesome to see talented/Grammy-winning style artists change that. Drastically. People like Lecrae, Propaganda and Trip Lee coming on to the scene with amazing talent, skill and good music.

    Beyond making quality music, many of these artists, like Trip Lee as doing much more! Like this quick read, The Good Life.

    Everybody has a story and I enjoyed reading Lee's. He freely and passionately shares his story and the truth he's come to discover_ that the real good life is so much more than what the world offers. He's honest and doesn't hold back.

    "Faith in your Creator means more than giving lip service to His existence. It means believing what He says and so ordering your life around it. It means inconveniencing yourself for the sake of following Him. The Lord said, "Blessed_are those who hear the word of God and keep it!" (Luke 11:28).

    A quick read, but no less impactful, it's a story worth reading and passing along to those who are interested in Christianity, have questions about it and even those who already know the foundations of faith.

    Here's a few more of my favorite quotes from the book:

    "Though Jesus is the Lord who owns all things, He became a man like you and me. He surrendered His divine wealth, and put on human flesh. He died on the cross and rose from the grave. And He did it for sinners. He traded places with poor rebels so that we could enjoy "unsearchable riches." That's good news (Ephesians 3:8). Our faith in that good news should move us to look more like Him in our own contentment and generosity."

    "When we understand that this life is not all there is, we can give of ourselves freely."

    Plus he describes the Heat "big three" announcement as over hyped. It's the little things, you know? That will always earn points with me.

    "We can be adopted into God's family. We can be indwelled by God's Spirit. We can be empowered to follow Him. We can begin to live the good life."

    "The Good Life" is only 176 pages, but potent. I confess, I thought I would breeze through the pages in no time. But I was wrong.

    "The Good Life" is deep and meaty. It's not a glass of milk, but a thick piece of filet mignon. I found myself chewing long and hard through this small, but powerful book.

    I sometimes come across books which I believe are not doctrinally sound. However, I didn't find this to be the case with "The Good Life". Trip Lee presents the gospel in such a biblically sound and balanced way.

    I was impressed to see Trip Lee's spiritual maturity and level of insight expressed in his book.

    Overall, I think this is a great book. I believe "The Good Life" should get into the hands of everyone, whether saved or unsaved, but mostly, our youth. I believe this book will resonate with the youth in a profound way.

    *I received a complimentary copy of this book to review from the publisher.
