Daniel White Hodge’s Homeland InsecurityL A Hip Hop Missiology for the Post-Civil Right’s Context (IVP 2018) is a vital work on race, mission, Hip Hop, and finding Jesus in a post-soul, post-civil rights context. I was excited to write down some thoughts.
“Western evangelism has run its course. There is not much we can salvage from it. Hip Hop theology creates space for multiethnic voices to imagine God and heaven while filled with doubt. It allows us to live in ambiguity while still seeking the face of God. Hip Hop theology gives credence to love, unity, peace, and fellowship with God from the context of a multiethnic and intercultural perspective. This is where missiology needs to go, and together we can begin to reconstruct what Christianity looks like in the wild for a generation seeking new and fresh symbols of Jesus.” (232)
