Release Date: May 3, 2016
Description: 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 a Christian in a secular age. This is the story of one man’s journey to faith and freedom.
Thoughts: I have a hardback of this but decided to listen to the audio version. I’m glad that I did. With this way you get to hear Lecrae tell his story. He also uses intro to the chapters of his music to bring you into it. I loved that. I am a big fan of his music so that was a bonus for me.
Lecrae story itself is one that isn’t sugarcoated. He shows that Christians aren’t perfect and have made mistakes and will continue to make them. Like his music it isn’t about preaching it is about being telling a story. Lecrae tells his story of struggles and what it took to make it through them. Unashamed is about his upbringing. Things that happened in his childhood up through college and trying to get started as a rapper.
