We were made to create. But our troubled world doesn't make it easy. Few people understand this better than acclaimed hip-hop artist and creative polymath Sho Baraka. With unforgettable prose and crisp storytelling, Sho will inspire you to speak truth, chase beauty, and live out the deep satisfaction of your life's true work.
Through inspiring analysis of the Black artistic experience, storytelling, poetry, and an honest, incisive view of Christian faith, Sho Baraka reveals how discovering your destined place in God's creative story impassions our gospel, helps you take a stand for a more just and beautiful world.
Sho believes that God's work is a grand narrative of creation and redemption. And he invites you to join that work by leading the world to more--more creativity, truth, beauty, life, and wholeness. Since we often experience challenges in that work, through everything from systemic social injustice to personal hangups, Sho empowers you to experience resistance as an opportunity for creative and social breakthrough.
This book is an invitation to see those challenges in your life as an opportunity to learn something profound about God, yourself, and your specific work in the world.
What if, just like in the Bible's creation story, God was waiting to proclaim "good" over what he is making in us--and even what he is making through us?
