Dc Talk

Since releasing their album Jesus Freak, dc Talk has emerged as a leader in the pursuit of melding rock 'n' roll with provocative questions of faith. Numerous Dove Awards, four Grammy Awards, two platinum albums, one gold album, and two gold-certified long-form videos and with seven million albums sold, attest to the group's ability to bridge the gap between religious and secular audiences. "We are very open about our Christian faith," says Toby McKeehan, "but when we make our records we want to create a musical experience that anyone can immerse themselves in. One of our goals is to encourage listeners to question themselves and to seek out truth." They authored the books, Jesus Freaks and Jesus Freaks Volume II: Stories of Revolutionaries Who Changed Their World Fearing God, Not Man, launching them into a new media form - challenging readers to question their own standards of faith and dedication - impacting the world like never before. In addition to their recordings, live performance has been a crucial part of the dc Talk story, and the group's fiery on-stage delivery earned them respect from virtually all quarters. Whether forging strong bonds with concert audiences, or expressing their faith in the recording studio, dc Talk strives to treat their listeners as equals, rather than receptors. McKeehan says, "We want to make music that encourages people to think about the things we think about,spiritual issues and truth." Max adds, "Just as we all share the idea of caring and conscience, we also share the hunger to find truth and meaning in life." - Publisher.

A fresh perspective
4 stars By Katelyn, Nov 22 2016
I first read this book as a teenager, and its content had a great emotional impact on me, such that I have not been able to forget it. In the western world we can often go about our days without giving second thought to those throughout the world being persecuted for their faith to such huge extent as is displayed in the stories in this book. It is eye opening, and encouraging of many topics of prayer we may usually forget about. Whilst it is not a 'must-have' book on one's shelf, I think it is a great book to read and reflect on our own faithfulness to the gospel and to be thankful for our brothers and sisters who are such great disciples and ambassadors of Christ. I highly recommend reading this book, or one like it.

Inspiring
5 stars By Craig, Oct 30 2016
This book was inspiring and sad. It's inspiring reading how other Christians stood for their faith. It's sad because the person is tortured or killed. Each short biography is only a few pages long so it's easy to read a story or two each day. The stories range from the 1st century up to the 1990s and all stories are said to be true. It is similar to the book "I am N". I recommend this book to others.
