Abstract:

The book explores the views that Christian theology is a theology of liberation and by means of this spiritual deliverance, an innovative, yet, revolutionary voice (Gospel hip hop) has emerged from the pews of the Sunday morning worship hour in the Black church. It is the author's contention that the emergence of Christian hip hop based ministries has taken on the role of a new liberating theological theme among youth within the Black community.
