Theology with a Beat

Whether you're a fan of rap or not, I encourage you to check out "The Process of the Pardon," the latest album from Voice, a.k.a. Curtis Allen. Sure, it has a good beat, but the real selling point is that it actually has something to say.

If you're like me, the number of Christian artists you can actually stand listening to are few and far between. That's probably because the biggest problem with contemporary Christian music (aside from the fact that most of it just sounds bad) is the lack of clear, concise, biblical theology. This album is dripping with sound theology. It has a Christ-centered, God-glorifying message. It is a no-holds-barred presentation of the Gospel. And it sounds great, too!

Voice touches on a wide range of important theological topics, such as covenant theology (with Ligon Duncan), the ordo salutis (with Wayne Grudem), and even the New Perspective on Paul. What other Christian recording artist can claim that?

Tony Reinke posted a full-length track from the album ("Here I Stand," my personal favorite), over on his blog, Miscellanies. You can check out other audio samples and order the CD by clicking here. Enjoy!

I am not a fan of hip-hop music (way too old and way too Euro-American), but the Christian doctrine expressed in the samples just blew me away. Truly amazing... truly terrific.
