A new book is getting attention in Nashville through billboards that declare “Rock Gets Religion” and “The Gospel is too important to stay in Gospel music.”
“Rock Gets Religion” by Mark Joseph, features a foreword by rock legend Alice Cooper.
The book lays out the case for people of faith to continue to make their music within the popular culture. It shows the promises and pitfalls for Christian artists who have the talent to succeed and the spiritual strength to remain true in a decadent culture.
Joseph has worked as a music and film producer, columnist, music producer, talk-show host and author.
He produced the official soundtrack for “The Passion of the Christ.”
He points to artists such as Kendrick Lamar, Chance the Rapper, Katy Perry and 21 Pilots who have been deeply influenced by their faith.
“Mark Joseph has been a key voice in the transformation of American popular music,”
