Grammy-winning hip-hop and rap artist Lecrae offers readers a blunt portrayal of his mistakes and victories in his autobiography, Unashamed. It is a story of his redemption from many societal ills—child abuse, drugs, alcohol, abortion, and attempted suicide—to the loving acceptance of Jesus. He knows firsthand the truth of the powerful statement he makes: “If you live for people’s acceptance, you’ll die from their rejection.”

The book charts his salvation experience, the legalistic lifestyle he pursued for a time, and the freedom he discovered that changed his music and his life. Lecrae challenges people to adopt a biblical worldview and to avoid dividing the world into separate secular and Christian spheres. He celebrates all that God has helped him overcome, but he also calls readers to live an authentic Christian life. (B & H)
