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.

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.

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. Yeah, that's a thing.


Christian ideas often show up in hip hop music. Biblical themes and even Jesus Himself appear in the lyrics. But beneath all the God-talk, can a true gospel message be found?


Pastor D. A. Horton (aka hip hop artist Azriel) says yes. And he wants you to know the gospel message is deep ... powerful ... theological ... and surprisingly simple to comprehend. It all comes down to:

God's design Our downfall God's demonstration Our decision
Are You Good With God? is a book of giant truths written in the raw and rhythmic style of hip hop. The poetry of the streets will energize you with the dynamic power of Scripture. Like every other global language, hip hop speaks to the human heart with truths that really matter. So if hip hop is your mother tongue, why not listen to what God is saying to you?
