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.

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.

Anointed Bio

I love how this bio is narrated by this author. It lends such authenticity to the work and gives such clear targeted voice to the work. The text was written in high quality without being obtuse. I thoroughly enjoyed it!

Really good book!

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.

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!
