Washington, DC (PRWEB) November 28, 2005
Kymo Dockett, the founder and editor of What’s The Word magazine (http://www.wtwmagazine.com), has just published The Lost Generation. Mr. Dockett traveled across the nation for over five years, covering Urban Gospel music. He is the best-known and respected Christian hip-hop journalist in the world. This Fisk University gradate has covered events including the Holy Hip Hop Awards, Rap Fest, and Flavor Fest. He has interviewed hundreds of artists, including Out of Eden, Cross Movement, and Corey Red. After more than ten years of reaching out to urban youth, Kymo sensed the need to help the church understand the Hip-Hop Generation and how to reach them.
Why is there a need for this book? According to the Barna Research Group, only 3 out of 10 people in this country in their 20s (31%) attend church in a typical week, compared to 4 out of 10 of those in their 30s (42%) and nearly half of all adults in their 40s (49%). If these trends continue, America can expect only about 20% of the next generation to attend church. Why are we seeing statistics such as these? The Lost Generation explores this mystery and offers solutions.
This book also contains: (1) Suggestions for attracting hip-hoppers to church; (2) Examples of ministries that have effectively reached the Hip-Hop Generation; (3) Reasons why Minister Louis Farrakhan can attract thousands of men to the Nation of Islam, while the church appeals to comparatively few; (4) An explanation of why the Hip-Hop Generation developed in this nation; (5) Testimonies from young people who came out of the hip-hop culture; (6) An examination of the Christian hip-hop movement; (7) The history of Christian hip hop; (8) A list of the Top Ten Greatest Christian Hip-Hop Albums of all time; (9) The 2005 What Awards: Honoring the Best of 2005; and (10) A Resource Guide for Christian Hip Hop.
