Furthermore, Billy must have actually approved of at least one rapper, Lecrae, or else he wouldn’t have included him in his Final Sermon–one that has already reached tens of millions via video and is likely to become recognized as the powerful and complete gospel message of his long and famous life. It’s a must-see. It’s called, The Cross.
Does Billy Graham listen to rap? Yes. But this begs an even bigger question: Does God listen to rap?
Well. Does He? Because if He does, there are a lot of implications for those of us who tend to normalize Christianity into the limited range of categories with which we are personally familiar and comfortable.
Does God listen to rap? If you, like me, would be inclined to answer, No way! you’ll be challenged and blessed by reading the brand new book from Cruciform Press, Does God Listen to Rap? Christians and the World’s Most Controversial Music.
This short book is more than just an apologetic for rap music, it’s a biblical way to think about how Christians can be in the world yet not of the world, and how they can express themselves to the glory of God.
It’s written by a pastor, husband, and father of three, who moonlights as a Christian rap artist called Voice.
He’s also the author of Education or Imitation? Bible Interpretation for Dummies Like You and Me (soon to be re-released as From Me-ology to Theology: What Jesus Taught Us about Bible Interpretation).
