The fusion of Christian community and the hip-hop culture is very real, ^very significant, and-sadly-very incomplete. While Christian themes and concepts ^are prevalent among the listeners to Christian hip hop, it often comes with little ^theological depth beyond a 3-minute rhyme. They lyrics are meaningful, but that ^meaning escapes the majority of its audience.


To fill this critical gap of ^understanding Pastor D. A. Horton (aka hip hop artist Azriel) has written G.O.S.P.E.L. ^in the language of hip hop with the crystal-clear power of Scripture. It's a sound, ^compelling presentation of the life-changing truth many professing believers fail ^to grasp: the gospel. Undiluted. Unmistakable.

D.A. HORTON (D.Ed.Min candidate at Midwestern Baptist Theological ^Seminary, Kansas City, MO) was born in inner city Kansas City, KS and was "headed ^to the grave or prison" before God called him to salvation and into evangelism and ^Gospel rap (under the name Azriel). Horton is now the Lead Teaching Elder at Koinonia ^Bible Church in Kansas City, MO and a professor of Systematic Theology and at Calvary ^Bible College and Contemporary Theology at Calvary Theological Seminary (Kansas ^City, MO). He is currently developing Urban Ministry courses for the college as ^well as an Urban Ministry masters degree program for the seminary. D.A. (Azriel) ^is still a D.J. and rapper who seeks to utilize his theological training to pronounce ^the gospel through his lyrics.


One of the most misunderstood doctrines in the urban context is the ^Gospel. D.A. not only highlights how essential the Gospel is, but clearly articulates ^and defines the Gospel for the often forgotten and misunderstood urban culture.
            ^LeCrae
            Reach ^Records artist of bestselling album Rehab



G.O.S.P.E.L. ^isn't breaking ground but it is groundbreaking. Having a Latino urban theological ^voice on the issue of the Gospel is a profound need. With this work Pastor Horton ^helps to bring the simple (not simplistic) solution of the Gospel to a complex urban ^context. 
            ^Eric Mason
           Lead ^Pastor of Epiphany Fellowship, Philadelphia


Damon Horton is a young ^pastor with a passion to communicate the gospel in a relevant format to the urban ^sector in such a way that they can receive the message, comprehend the message, ^and apply the message to their lives. This book takes the theological issues that ^are often overlooked or ignored and drives home the meaning of the Gospel with clarity. ^Reverend Horton has answered the question well, "What is the Gospel?"
            ^James L. Clark, PhD
            ^President of Calvary Bible College and Theological Seminary




There ^are few who can preach to the thug on the street corner as well as the seminary ^student in the lecture hall. Damon does both, and does it effectively. The diversity ^of people in his church is living proof. Even though we minister in different cities, ^our passion is the same: to spread the seed of the Gospel in the soil of broken ^communities.
                ^Brian Dye
                ^Pastor of Legacy Fellowship, Chicago




D.A. Horton is ^a gifted preacher and poet who has addressed the most important category in Scripture-that ^is the Gospel. D.A. tackles the Gospel with insightful "thebonics" as he proclaims ^Christ to both the urban and suburban street. I predict D.A. will continue to impact ^lives for the glory of Christ as long as the cross continues to be central in all ^he does.
            Jeremy ^Krause
            Student ^Ministries Pastor 
            ^First Evangelical Free Church, Wichita, Kansas




D. A. Horton ^has provided a practical and accessible tool that will prove to be exceedingly helpful ^for the inner-city context. This book clearly communicates the truths of the Gospel ^in a way that the "Block" can grab hold. This book puts Jesus on display, and it ^has a great balance of practice and theology. Read it, use it, and teach it often!  ^
            Doug Logan, ^Jr.
            Lead ^Pastor, Epiphany Fellowship of Camden, New Jersey





Damon addresses ^an issue that hits home to the church, both in the "burbs" and the "hood." He gives ^us the heart of the Gospel with clarity and a solid biblical foundation. After nearly ^thirty years of ministry and countless mission trips with both students and adults, ^I am happy to endorse a handbook on how to share the Gospel in any context. His ^presentation shows that the Gospel transcends time and cultures with the power of ^the love of Christ.
            ^Geoff Safford
            ^Celebration Lead, Westwind Church




D. A. Horton's knowledge of the ^Word, his love for his family, and his care for God's people make him a sharp tool ^in God's hand. His contribution to the urban community is groundbreaking. Listen ^to him, learn from him, and experience his leadership.

The gospel according to hip hop


The fusion of the Christian community and hip-hop culture is very real, very significant, and-sadly-very incomplete. While Christian themes and concepts are prevalent among the listeners of Christian hip hop, it often comes with little theological depth beyond a 3-minute rhyme. The lyrics are meaningful, but that meaning escapes the majority of its audience.


To fill this critical gap of understanding, Pastor D. A. Horton (aka hip-hop artist Azriel) has written G.O.S.P.E.L.. In the language of hip hop and with the crystal-clear power of Scripture, it is a sound and compelling presentation of the life-changing truth many professing believers fail to fully grasp: the gospel. Undiluted. Unmistakable. Unstoppable.
