The gospel according to hip hop

The fusion of the Christian community and hip-hop culture is very real, very significant, and—sadly—very incomplete. While Christian themes and concepts are prevalent among the listeners of Christian hip hop, it often comes with little theological depth beyond a 3-minute rhyme. The lyrics are meaningful, but that meaning escapes the majority of its audience.

To fill this critical gap of understanding, Pastor D. A. Horton (aka hip-hop artist Azriel) has written G.O.S.P.E.L.. In the language of hip hop and with the crystal-clear power of Scripture, it is a sound and compelling presentation of the life-changing truth many professing believers fail to fully grasp: the gospel. Undiluted. Unmistakable. Unstoppable.

About the Author:

D.A. HORTON currently serves on staff at Summit Church in Durham, NC while he and his family are preparing to plant a church in Los Angeles. Prior to his current role he served as an urban church planter, pastor, and Lead Teaching Elder in Kansas City, MO for nearly six years; a National Coordinator of Urban Student Ministries and the Urban Initiatives Team at the North American Mission Board (NAMB); and the Executive Director at ReachLife Ministries, the non-profit arm of Reach Records. D.A. is currently working on his Ph.D. at Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary in Applied Theology with a North American emphasis. With a heart to provide local churches with quality Bible-centered tools and resources for evangelism and discipleship, D.A. wrote two books: G.O.S.P.E.L. and DNA: Foundations of the Faith both published by Moody Publishers. His third book, Bound to Be Free: Escaping Performance to be Captured by Grace will be released through NavPress in spring 2016. He and his wife Elicia have two daughters, Izabelle and Lola and one son, D.A. Jr. (aka Duce).

Review:

One of the most misunderstood doctrines in the urban context is the Gospel. D.A. not only highlights how essential the Gospel is, but clearly articulates and defines the Gospel for the often forgotten and misunderstood urban culture.
            LeCrae
            Reach Records artist of bestselling album Rehab

G.O.S.P.E.L. isn’t breaking ground but it is groundbreaking. Having a Latino urban theological voice on the issue of the Gospel is a profound need. With this work Pastor Horton helps to bring the simple (not simplistic) solution of the Gospel to a complex urban context. 
            Eric Mason
           Lead Pastor of Epiphany Fellowship, Philadelphia

Damon Horton is a young pastor with a passion to communicate the gospel in a relevant format to the urban sector in such a way that they can receive the message, comprehend the message, and apply the message to their lives. This book takes the theological issues that are often overlooked or ignored and drives home the meaning of the Gospel with clarity. Reverend Horton has answered the question well, “What is the Gospel?”
            James L. Clark, PhD
            President of Calvary Bible College and Theological Seminary

There are few who can preach to the thug on the street corner as well as the seminary student in the lecture hall. Damon does both, and does it effectively. The diversity of people in his church is living proof. Even though we minister in different cities, our passion is the same: to spread the seed of the Gospel in the soil of broken communities.
                Brian Dye
                Pastor of Legacy Fellowship, Chicago

D.A. Horton is a gifted preacher and poet who has addressed the most important category in Scripture—that is the Gospel. D.A. tackles the Gospel with insightful “thebonics” as he proclaims Christ to both the urban and suburban street. I predict D.A. will continue to impact lives for the glory of Christ as long as the cross continues to be central in all he does.
            Jeremy Krause
            Student Ministries Pastor 
            First Evangelical Free Church, Wichita, Kansas

D. A. Horton has provided a practical and accessible tool that will prove to be exceedingly helpful for the inner-city context. This book clearly communicates the truths of the Gospel in a way that the “Block” can grab hold. This book puts Jesus on display, and it has a great balance of practice and theology. Read it, use it, and teach it often! 
            Doug Logan, Jr.
            Lead Pastor, Epiphany Fellowship of Camden, New Jersey

Damon addresses an issue that hits home to the church, both in the “burbs” and the “hood.” He gives us the heart of the Gospel with clarity and a solid biblical foundation. After nearly thirty years of ministry and countless mission trips with both students and adults, I am happy to endorse a handbook on how to share the Gospel in any context. His presentation shows that the Gospel transcendstime and cultures with the power of the love of Christ.
            Geoff Safford
            Celebration Lead, Westwind Church

D. A. Horton’s knowledge of the Word, his love for his family, and his care for God’s people make him a sharp tool in God’s hand. His contribution to the urban community is groundbreaking. Listen to him, learn from him, and experience his leadership.
