Free E-Book: Pop Psalms

I’ve contributed the first chapter to Think Christian’s latest FREE E-BOOK: POP PSALMS. I’m writing about Lizzo’s “Truth Hurts”:

“No one could have predicted it: the summer of 2019 belonged to a rapping flautist.

The artist known as Lizzo enjoyed a record-breaking run atop the Billboard Hot 100 as her carefree, boldly embodied persona captured the attention of the world. Equal parts tears and self-confidence, Lizzo’s debut album Cuz I Love You is anchored by the smash hit “Truth Hurts,” an earworm that kick starts with this painful truism: “Why are men great until they gotta be great?”

Read the rest, where I explore connects to Psalm 44, Romans 8, and how we can sing psalms of lament with swagger. And read great chapters from other contributors like Claude Atcho, Aarik Danielsen, and Sarah Welch-Larson.
