A lot of people think that if there is one style of music in the world that God hates, it has got to be rap. Some have even gone so far as to call rap, ?An unclean thing before the Lord.? They don?t believe something originally associated with so much evil can ever be redeemed for God?s glory.Lots of other people love and accept rap as their preferred form of musical expression. Many of these who are Christians can?t imagine why God would have any issues with rap - at least, not with songs by believers that encourage and edify them in the faith.Who?s right? And maybe more importantly, who cares? You should. And here?s why.In the past 30 years, rap music has become a vital artistic and cultural force globally, and it?s showing no signs of slowing down. Like it or not, you are probably exposed to rap in one form or another on a fairly regular basis. If you?re interested in this book you may be a believer in Jesus who likes rap a lot, and as Christians, when we love something that is (if you hadn?t noticed) closely associated with sin and rebellion, our justification for being involved with it really does need to go beyond, ?Dude, this is good stuff.?But maybe you?re in a different category. Maybe you?re a Christian parent, concerned that rap music may have a negative impact on your child. Maybe you?re a youth pastor worried about having a rap concert at his church because of the potential pushback. Or maybe you?re just a rap fan who is curious to see if there?s even any biblical evidence for or against rap.To put it simply, if you?ve made it this far, this book is probably for you. Does God Listen to Rap? covers two areas. First, it presents a sociological history of the emergence and development of rap. If you enjoy rap and hip hop culture, you?ll love this part of the book. Then the book explores the Scriptures to bring some biblical (not just personal or anecdotal) resolution to the question of God and rap. Ultimately, this involves a set of larger questions involving God and the arts. This is more than just an apologetic for rap music, this is 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.So, does God listen to rap? Come find out.About the AuthorCurtis Allen is a pastor at Solid Rock Church in Riverdale, Maryland, and moonlights as a Christian rap artist called Voice. He and his wife, Betsy, have three sons. He is also the author of Education or Imitation? He can be found at CurtisAllen.net.
