About this title


Lies My Pastor Told Me: Both our view of God and our daily life as Christians are shaped by what we hear in church. Unfortunately, sometimes the things that are repeated most often in church culture are the things that are the most untrue. Lies My Pastor Told Me confronts 18 of these common cliches with the gospel and shows how they rob Jesus of the glory he deserves and rob his people of the true good he has for them. Lies Hip Hop Told Me: Hip Hop has a profound influence on what millions of Americans think, value, and do. This influence is simultaneously life-giving and life-destroying. Lies Hip Hop Told Me is written from Hip Hop culture, to Hip Hop culture, and confronts 14 common Hip Hop slogans that perpetuate a false understanding of God, humanity, and the world. Endorsements for Lies Hip Hop Told Me: "Whether you know Hip Hop culture or not, the biblical insights here are profound. If you are ignorant of that culture, as I am, you will find Cole's wrestling a great introduction. Beyond that, his wrestlings will help you shake lies where ever you were infected." -- Gerry Breshears, Professor of Theology at Western Seminary and co-author of Doctrine: What Christians Should Believe. "A hard-hitting, straight-talking, Bible-filled concise critique of the most prominent cultural influence of our day. Cole talks the talk because has walked the walk. Let's pray this book gets in the right hands." -- Anthony Carter, Lead Pastor of East Point Church in Atlanta, GA and author of On Being Black and Reformed. "Lies Hip Hop Told Me is a tasteful examination of things said, sang, and endorsed in Hip Hop culture. Not often do I read a book of commentary about the gospel that is written by someone who is legitimately a Hip Hop head. As well, seldom do I find a book that talks about Hip Hop and uses the gospel to give me insight and, at the same time, have me literally laughing out loud. Get yourself a copy, read it and tell a homey to do the same so you'll have somebody to sit and argue with." -- Vursatyl of Lifesavas
