It is easy to condemn hip-hop for the condition of our society, but as we condemn our own young people for being who they are, what role do we play in making them who they are, and what do we have to offer them as an alternative to who they are? Hip-Hop Is Not Our Enemy is an insider's critique of the Black church's role and responsibility in co-opting hip-hop culture. It is written by a Black Baptist Pastor who survived a church split that occurred because of his dedication to co-opting hip-hop culture. The final chapter serves as a how-to guide to preparing a sermon that will connect with the hip-hop generation.
