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.

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.
nothing is free
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!
So much transforming truth and transparency was displayed in every word. I feel encouraged, inspired and empowered. Awesome book!!
"Lecrae. ..finding his Truth"
Will Listen again.
Heavy chapter at beginning but keep going.
Lecrae Journey to Balance and to his Truth is powerful.
Many nuggets of wisdom.
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.
"beautiful and eye opening"
what a wonderful telling of Lecrae life and journey to see what the Lord has for him. A lot of people judge Lecrae without knowing his story without knowing the story that God is trying to tell through him. I am so overjoyed with how he has overcome his struggles and how God is continuously pushed him and his family to the season he's currently in to be used by God. Lecrae does a phenomenal job in telling the story. Very well done
"Excellent and makes one go humm"
this book is worth passing on to my children and my siblings too. Learned definitely made room for Jesus even in places most Christian people would dare to go. But faith...But God!
"amazing life story, true men seeking God's heart."
amazing life story, true men seeking God's heart
.amazing life story, true men seeking God's heart.
This book is simply amazing!! As a mother of two teenage boys it gave me such hope and a breath of fresh air!!! May God continue to bless this young man and his family as he follows Gods plan!!!!
"blown away by the story"
hearing anyone's story changes things as it should we all have one to to tell. Lecrae's music has become an inspiring fabric in my faith for years. At one point I was compelled to purchase 20 copies of the Rebel CD just to give to young people who I knew just needed to hear it. Seen him live multiple times and always found him to be the real deal. Very thankful that he has extended his honesty in artistry by boldly telling his story. All the hints in his music are fleshed out in the gut wrenching details that give even more meaning to the struggle. I cheer loudly for this man! I pray for his success as a person in finishing his race well in life. Read the book! Before I finished the 3rd chapter of his story, like his music, I already had a list of people in mind who HAD to hear it! Proud once again of what you are putting out there Lecrae!
Loved this book. Especially loved that Lecrae read it. It's very open, honest, and God's pursuit of his heart is evident throughout.
A story brilliantly told by Lecrae. Good insight into the reason why he does what he does.
what a story. love lecrae. keep doing what your doing and inspiring people to Jesus
great book from beginning to end. In depth, inspirational and truthful. It Highlights the problems Christian face in the modern days. Well done Lecrea
"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.
Thoroughly enjoyed listening to his story!
At times i wanted a bit more depth about how he overcame specific struggles, but he was so honest and bold with everything. Great listen!
Capitalising story with a great message behind it. Really opened up a lot a wisdom and knowledge about The Word and the world . Thank you Lecrae.
"Genuine, Honest, from the heart, challenging"
A massive blessing listening to this with his struggle and passion for God and the idea of being in this world not just separate a massive challenge! definitely highly recommend!!!
