Episcopal priest publishes book about hip hop
The Rev. Timothy Holder is an openly gay, Episcopal priest from the South Bronx who is involved in the rap game. So obviously someone had to write a book about him.
That someone is Eric Gutierrez and the book is called Disciples of the Street: The Promise of a Hip Hop Church. It is out now from Seabury Books. To our more illiterate readers, never fear, as this just HAS to be turned into a movie at some point.
Disciples of the Street chronicles Holder’s experiences beginning a hip hop ministry at his church to reach out to inner city youth. Along the way he secured the help of several well known rappers, battled stuffy, old church members who didn’t want to be a part of any of that hippity hop, and presumably met Eric Gutierrez, the guy who wrote the book.
You can expect a BPM book review in the near future.
