About-

Tupac Amaru Shakur was considered a Hip Hop prophet. His spiritual journey has not had much attention given to it until now. This book looks at Tupac’s gospel message from a Hip Hop context. Tupac presents a theological message needed now even twenty-plus years after his death.

Endorsements & Reviews-

“Theology is a ghost. For centuries, white theologians extolled the virtues of inclusion in Christ, while excluding black and brown folks from every dimension of Christian social life to the point of irrelevance. In Baptized in Dirty Water, hip-hop theologian Daniel White Hodge turns to the life (and death) of Tupac Shakur, presenting the artist through a theological register. In doing so, Hodge might just be resurrecting theology from its ghostly white reputation.”

—Christopher Driscoll, author of White Lies
