Book Jacket:

Lauryn Hill and Tupac Shakur are modern-day prophets.

Written on subway walls and tenement halls, their lyrics challenge us as individuals and as a society to stop doing wrong and learn to do right (Isaiah 1:16-17). They paint an honest picture of life as it is lived, and hint at a vision of life as it ought to be lived.

With this book John Teter and Alex Gee invite us to enter into the world of these hip-hop prophets--to follow their message to its ultimate fulfillment at the feet of the Prophet-King Jesus. They invite you to

Follow the beats.

Let the truth speak through the beats of the streets.
Love is real.
Hope is real.
Jesus is real.

Follow the beats of these poet-prophets
as they lead to the feet of the Prophet-King.
The Word (Love is real)
The Truth (Hope is real)
The God-Man (Jesus is real)

Follow the beats as they drop from the lips
Of Lauryn Hill
Of Tupac Shakur
Of the Truth-Made-Flesh

Till they lead you to God.
