In the Hip Hop culture, Jesus Christ is often reduced to a fashion accessory, an occasional song topic or a popular tattoo choice. But He's so much more
And while millions of people worldwide identify themselves as part of the Hip Hop culture, far too few people in the culture know much about the Jesus that adorns their necklaces, or the cross that is tattooed on their shoulders. Making matters worse, what they do know is often unbiblical and comes from unreliable sources. Worse still, far too little has been done to communicate the gospel to the Hip Hop generation. Being involved in high school campus and community outreach, as well as juvenile prison ministry, this is something author Chris Lassiter sees daily.
"You're Grounded "is""an introductory book to the person of Jesus Christ and the Christian life aimed specifically at the Hip Hop influenced generation. Written in an easy to read fashion, each chapter starts with a story from urban culture - using examples familiar to the culture like Michael Jordan, Tupac, the TV show "Good Times "- and then transitions to highlight truth found in scripture.
This book is ideal for small group and discipleship settings. It's a great resource for high school and college campus ministries, as well as juvenile and adult prison ministries.
