A few years ago, we were introduced to Christian Rap Music. I would never have admitted I liked that genre of music, but after hearing the words of artists such as Shai Linne, Ambassador, Trip Lee, Tedashi, etc, I was taken. Much of what they write is Theology set to beat.
Recently, Trip Lee has written a book that will revolutionize your spiritual life if you take to heart all he says. Rise is written to speak especially to the younger generation about all they encounter in the culture around them and how to fight for God's glory in their lives. Trip Lee speaks from his heart and this book is written as if he is sitting down on the couch in your living room and giving a pep talk to your family.
From sex to music to social media, Mr. Lee takes on these issues with great tact and exposes the lies that most of our young people face. This spoke to me as well. He doesn't come out and give standards of obedience or a "do not do" list. He speaks from God's Word and truth about time management, priorities and wisdom.
More than anything, He encourages the reader to develop a relationship with his Creator in order to combat the lies of the world, our flesh and Satan.
This is a must read for our teens and young people, as well as anyone who wants to be challenged in their thinking.
As a part of the Booksneeze blogging network, I received a free copy of this book.
