June-July “Towers” raps about hip-hop, the covenants

Communications Staff — June 4, 2012

The June-July 2012 “Towers” is now on stands and online.

It’s hard to miss the impact Christian hip-hop has on the current generation of (especially younger, Reformed) evangelicals. What began as a marginalized movement in the South now finds itself distributed by major music sellers – Christian and secular – and among the most talked about and energetic music movements. This issue of “Towers” offers a brief timeline of Christian hip-hop, and a conversation with rappers Lecrae, Trip Lee, Shai Linne and FLAME. And, in the spirit of the theme, the cover represents a Technics turntable, a widely used instrument among producers, DJs and rap MCs.

Also in the June-July issue, Southern Seminary professor Stephen J. Wellum and Peter Gentry discuss their new book, Kingdom through Covenant: A Biblical-Theological Understanding of the Covenants; the  History Highlight column surveys Southern’s involvement in popular media, from radio to Twitter; and Josh Hayes profiles Bruce Ware, professor of Christian theology, in the June-July Southern Story.

Southern Seminary Resources publishes “Towers,” Southern Seminary Magazine and other seminary publications digitally as well as physically. Check out the Resources page for an improved online reading experience.
