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!

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.

Lecrae does a great job of laying things down in a real-world view for everybody to understand. I think everybody needs to hear this because we're all human

Great, great book. Really resonated with me and my story. Obvious recommendation if you're a fan of his but if you are a casual listener and just slightly interested in hip hop its a wonderful book.

Real, authentic, and powerful. A book for everyone.

There are not many books like this out there, sadly. A Christian man truly laying it all out there in the most authentic of ways to glorify God and help others.

It’s riveting, encouraging, inspiring, heartbreaking, and ultimately a huge breath of fresh air. All at the same time.

Some Christians can criticize Lecrae all they want... but they’re wrong. This man LOVES God and people. He’s not perfect (NONE of us are!), but I’ve followed his career and his story for about 14 years... he’s really growing in the Lord more and more every day.

God has used Lecrae in many ways to deeply encourage me, teach me, and inspire me over the years (and many people I know), and he is one of the people I respect most, not because he’s famous or talented, but because he’s following God the best he can (by the Holy Spirit) every day. A godly man is a rare and beautiful thing. I’m thankful for my brother in Christ: Lecrae Moore, and I’m most of all thankful that God is every bit as good as Lecrae says... and even better than he says. Words cannot encapsulate an infinitely good God, but this book does a great job of glorifying God. :)

I couldn’t stop listening, and I’ll probably listen again and again. Definitely download and listen to this all the way through.

Thank you, Lecrae, for following God even when you get undeserved backlash. I’ve been praying for you a long time, brother, and I’m consistently delighted to see how God is using “a liar to bring gladness” and how “listening to a broken man until your healing happens” has changed my life for the better. :) Much love!

5 stars - Great Performance!

Really enjoyed the raw story of Lecrae's life. I know that people will be able to relate to at least something that he speaks about. Not recommended for fans of Lecrae that may be younger. Tough topics spoken about.

Respect the honesty

What made the experience of listening to Unashamed the most enjoyable?

I've been a fan of Lecrae for a long time. I had a sense of his journey through his music. Hearing his story only provides greater context, reinforces his message and affirms his growth.

Which character – as performed by Lecrae Moore – was your favorite?

Lecrae himself. His reflection of his experience is a powerful testimony to a transformed life.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

Several parts moved me.

Really easy to listen to, with the animated voice acting from Lecrae. He explained how he has gotten to where he is, his shift in his approach, and was just a very insightful read! Really glad I got to listen to it.

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.
