Lie May 13, 2008
This is a lie!! This book in mixed with 5% nation of gods and earths teaching along with Biblical teaching. Yes the review was helpful in showing that Hip Hop doesnt belong in the church, it is not a tool to reach or save our young. Jesus Christ and Him crucified is the only way to reach people. Hip Hop is a religion and culture and upsurbs the authority of Christ Jesus. Please do your research people, please, dont perish for a lack of knowledge! My actual rating is a 0 but I had to put something to get it through.

Hip Hop Prayer Book Sep 8, 2006
I have always been a proponent of the 1928 Book of Common Prayer(and the Tridentine Mass) and in somewhat opposition to modern liturgy. It seems that the curse of Vatican 2 is that every other Church feels the need to emulate the Novus Ordo Mass in some way, as does the 1979 Prayer Book. However, I realise that there is a whole generation who don't know the 28 BCP and furthermore don't understand its language; ergo, one must make 'some' changes here. Since I do urban work, i can relate to this prayer book. I can appreciate a Hip-Hop Mass. It may not be my particular 'thang' but if others benefit from it, then I'm for it. I did have to scratch out several places where God is referred to as 'mother' because it is Scripturally wrong. Jesus called God, 'Father', and NOT 'mother'. End of discussion.But, I would encourage those who do inner city ministry and other interested parties as well, to obtain a copy of this book and learn from it and benefit as well.
A real blessing Jun 29, 2006
I love this. In these times, in America today, if it's not about cross-cultural communication, it can barely be about anything at all. This book puts the message of both the Bible and (yay!) the Episcopal way in a language a great many people will find inviting, accessible, and (yes) even fun. There's no way that can be bad. If there's one thing I imagine Jesus can't stand, it's being thought of as stale and inaccessible. Reading this, it's about impossible not to imagine Jesus somewhere up in heaven, also reading it, and while doing so bobbin' his head, and tappin' his feet, and thinking, "Right on. This works. Sweet."
