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.

AMAZING!!!!

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

My whole family listened with me!

I have been a fan for years and have admired from a far so I was excited to get the book. It was not what I expected. First this hopefully is not the last book Lecrae reads. He is a good narrator. Second the isn't a "Christian" book. This was a book about a journey and he was vulnerable enough to share with us the honest details. If you don't like rap, you still can find this book awesome. It talks about so many topics that you never hear men speak on. He doesn't try and make himself a hero as a matter of fact he does the opposite. But in the end you will walk away inspired to do more with your life.

Unshamed a good dose of truth

in "Unashamed", Lecrae takes you on a unfiltered journey from his youth to current day. He chornicles his growth and changes as learned to allow his creativity in his art form to mirror his own brokenness and the true imperfection of Christian' experience.

Life changing read!

The content was raw and inspiring! Really puts the fight of life and finding Christ I to perspective. Not the same lense for me in some areas but this book speaks life and was really well written! I have already recommended it to several others!

Suprising honest and very relateable

I very rarely read books where a Christian with a big name is as transparent as Lecrae is. I enjoyed every moment from start to finish and i learnt values i need to implement into my own life. Thank you Lecrae, I look forward to the sequal of your story.

This book really touched me

I’m a big fan of lecrae music so when I saw he had a book I didn’t hesitate to get it and I don’t regret it at all. Just listening to his journey made me understand his music a lot more and I could really relate to parts of this book and it even made evaluate my life. How experiences in my early childhood affect me made me into the person I am today. I really enjoyed listening to the book and I hope it writes more in the future.

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.

Understand life of Lecrae behind the scenes

This book is a valuable read of those who are Lecrae's fans and critics. This book shows fans of Christian musicians what they go through and that they have the same struggles or sometimes more that regular people because of their fame. Lecrae always points the reader to Jesus.

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!
