Publisher's Summary

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 Christian in a secular age.

This is the story of one man's journey to faith and freedom.

    "Brilliant!"

    So great to have Lecrae narrate his own book. A must read book for Christians and a fascinating read for those who aren't. A truly inspiring and honest story of Lecrae's life that helps you think about and critiqe life and culture.

    "Man this hurt me so much."

    The initial presentation made me aware of how much this man goes through. I got some tears over it. Been praying for these people and thanking God for lecrae and his experience. I relate emotionally to trial after test. I know God loves us and I you!

    Story
    "Inspiring Testimony"

    This book inspired me to dig even deeper in my faith. I've always struggled with legalism and what it actually means to be saved. Not only did this book give me an idea of what pursuing God looks like, but also inspired me to dig even deeper into the word of God to find the answers to the questions I've been afraid to ask.

    "honest, gritty, but not glamorizing"

    Lecrae tells his story honestly, but doesn't glamorize his pre-Christian life. Walks through tough issues of drugs, sex, and abortion.

    Story
    "Wow, I never would have thought..."
    What made the experience of listening to Unashamed the most enjoyable?

    Lecrae expressed his emotions very well while reading.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Unashamed?

    How often Lecrae was in trouble with the law (cops, etc)


    Which scene was your favorite?

    When Lecrae was confronted/called by God and fell to his knees under the preaching of James White (not of AOmin, which is one of my favorite theologians, but of Christ Our King Comm. Chuch). In short, God chose to save Lecrae, that is amazing.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    Jesus is a perfect Savior because God's grace is sufficient.


    Any additional comments?

    Lecrae is an amazing and I have more respect for him than I've ever had. I will continue to pray for him, his family and his work. I got a better explanation of why he makes the music he makes, and I know why we differ. He and I view walking in holiness a little differently. He explains holiness (the secular/sacred divide) in the last chapter. I'm familiar with his theology, being Reformed myself, so him acknowledging God's sovereign choice to do certain things in his life was refreshing.

    "Humbling. Transparent. Inspiring."

    This book has been a trip down memory lane. It describes some of the challenges imperfect Christians battle with everyday. It has released condemnation, and inspired growth & redemption. Lecrae, I look forward to impacting the Kingdom of God with you.

    "Who would of thought... a rapper with so much soul.? An Anomaly..."

    A very powerful story that tells a journey of self-discovery, humility and eventually,unwavering faith in God and his goodness.
    Lecrae narrates his story with passion, a stellar performance!!
    I especially enjoyed the concept of a biblical world view, and it challenged me to see the world through new eyes.
    Highly recommend reading to anyone wanting to push past their comfort zone.

    "Powerful, Inspiring, Honest"

    Excellent autobiography written and read by a thoughtful man whose struggles many will identify with.
    Audio version gives the advantage of being able to hear Lecrae rap the lyrics at the beginning of each chapter. It's also great to discover the context for some of Lecrae's albums. I look forward to listening to them again with new ears.
    I hope Lecrae's story inspires people to discover God's call for their lives and gives them the courage to pursue it.
