Summary

If you live for people's acceptance, you'll die from their rejection.

Two-time Grammy-winning rap artist, Lecrae, learned this lesson through more than his share of adversity - childhood abuse, drugs and alcoholism, a stint in rehab, an abortion, and an unsuccessful suicide attempt. Along the way, Lecrae attained an unwavering faith in Jesus and began looking to God for affirmation.

Now as a chart-topping industry anomaly, he has learned to ignore the haters and make peace with his craft. The rap artist holds nothing back as he divulges the most sensitive details of his life, answers his critics, shares intimate handwritten journal entries, and powerfully models how to be Christian in a secular age.

This is the story of one man's journey to faith and freedom.

Suprising honest and very relateable

I very rarely read books where a Christian with a big name is as transparent as Lecrae is. I enjoyed every moment from start to finish and i learnt values i need to implement into my own life. Thank you Lecrae, I look forward to the sequal of your story.

This book really touched me

I’m a big fan of lecrae music so when I saw he had a book I didn’t hesitate to get it and I don’t regret it at all.

Just listening to his journey made me understand his music a lot more and I could really relate to parts of this book and it even made evaluate my life. How experiences in my early childhood affect me made me into the person I am today.

I really enjoyed listening to the book and I hope it writes more in the future.

Really good book!

Really easy to listen to, with the animated voice acting from Lecrae. He explained how he has gotten to where he is, his shift in his approach, and was just a very insightful read! Really glad I got to listen to it.

Inspiring Testimony

This book inspired me to dig even deeper in my faith. I've always struggled with legalism and what it actually means to be saved. Not only did this book give me an idea of what pursuing God looks like, but also inspired me to dig even deeper into the word of God to find the answers to the questions I've been afraid to ask.

honest, gritty, but not glamorizing

Lecrae tells his story honestly, but doesn't glamorize his pre-Christian life. Walks through tough issues of drugs, sex, and abortion.

My whole family listened with me!

I have been a fan for years and have admired from a far so I was excited to get the book. It was not what I expected. First this hopefully is not the last book Lecrae reads. He is a good narrator. Second the isn't a "Christian" book. This was a book about a journey and he was vulnerable enough to share with us the honest details. If you don't like rap, you still can find this book awesome. It talks about so many topics that you never hear men speak on. He doesn't try and make himself a hero as a matter of fact he does the opposite. But in the end you will walk away inspired to do more with your life.

AMAZING!!!!

Lecrae does a great job of laying things down in a real-world view for everybody to understand. I think everybody needs to hear this because we're all human

Needs a Part 2

This was a great listen. But the last chapter is the most powerful. It really is an excellent setup for a followup book on Culture Creation and Influence... a setup for a more exhaustive exploration on the biblical worldview Lecrae presents here.

Revealing

Lecrae is my favorite rapper hands down. This book addresses many of the things his music expresses however it also sheds a light on HIS journey and HIS walk. Many people slander his name however if he is doing what he's called to do, only God can judge it.
