Product Description

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.

Endorsements

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.

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.

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?”

            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.

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 transcends time 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.
