Item description for The Gathering: City Prayers, City Hopes by Jeannine Otis...
Overview * Hip Hop spirituality continues to be an expanding category with interest increasing among mainline churches and seekers. * Brief nature of the prayers and ubiquity of hip hop culture is ideal for youth groups and outreach programs. * Significant media interest in The Hip Hop Prayer Book (ABC, Fox, Newsweek) and it's companion CD And the Word Was Hip Hop (Washington Post, Yahoo News) shows market potential. * Appeal beyond denominational lines. I've did some bad things in my life, from getting high to bad fights. Plus lying, stealing & getting nice. I knew that all those things weren't right. But now I have Jesus to make things tight. Even though the devil still tempts us to cuss, I just block him out & think about Judas. I will never betray God for the devil ever again. Well,I can't say never, but I'll strive not to sin. -Incarcerated Youth, USA This collection of prayers and reflections from rappers, both known and unknown, and inner city and incarcerated youth, is a powerful, unconventional expression of spirituality. Of great relevance for those speaking to the hip hop culture and experience ("Prayer for the DJs"), it cuts across boundaries.
