RISE by Trip Lee
I did not know who Trip Lee was when I chose to review RISE. I listened to his music on YouTube to get to know him better; by the time my review copy arrived in the mail I was a Trip Lee fan but I knew not everyone would be.
It is clear this book is written to young people and for Black men and women in particular. BUT, this book is for all. RISE presents an excellent case for why a person should dedicate their life to Jesus sooner rather than later.
Like his music on the CD of the same title, RISE, Trip Lee introduces faith to the listener / reader in a practical “keeping it real” kind of way. The concept of the book is practical which is why it is so easy to read.
For those who have a very tradition mindset when it comes to faith they will definitely reject RISE the CD which I would classify as edgy and they will not fully appreciate RISE the book. However, for people like me who reject tradition and seek the truth the reality found within the 212 pages of this book makes this book stellar! (Pun intended! Read the book to discover what I am talking about.)
I was telling my daughter about RISE the book and she said she would read it when she got a chance. Then she listened to RISE the CD now she has time to read the book. The book is: RISE Get Up And Live In God’s Great Story read it.
I recommend you buy a copy of this book for yourself not only what your and get the CD.
